Legislation regarding the Commission on Juvenile Justice
I am submitting for the Council's consideration a bill to add a representative from the
Collaboration Council for Children, Youth and Families to the Commission on Juvenile Justice. The bill
offsets this additional member by reducing the number of general voting members frotn 23 to 22. h a
result, the total number of voting members on the Commission remains unchanged
Since the creation of the Collaboration Council, the Commission has relied infonnally on
Collaboration Council staff for research and statistical data, routine updates on the Detention Risk
hsessment Instrument, expertise
in
policy matters, and support
in
preparing the Commission's budget.
Given the Collaboration Council's ongoing support to the Commission and the key role the Council plays
in both policy development and service delivery to the youth of Montgomery County, it
is
appropriate
that the Collaboration Council have a voting member on the Commission on Juvenile Justice.
Thank you for your consideration of this legislation.
