Applications are currently being accepted from Contra Costa County residents to fill youth (between the ages of 14 and 21) and adult (age 22+) vacancies on the Contra Costa County Juvenile Justice / Delinquency Prevention Commission (CCCJJ / DPC).
The purpose of the CCCJJ / DPC is "to be a public conscience in the best interest of justice for children and youth."
This 15-member commission meets the third Monday of each month from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Probation Department located in Martinez. An additional 8 hours of commitment per month may also be required. The commission serves in an advisory capacity to the Juvenile Court and County Probation Department by inspecting public and private placement facilities and/or programs and law enforcement agencies. The CCCJJ / DPC also coordinates delinquency prevention activities within Contra Costa.
County residents interested in Juvenile Justice are encouraged to request further information and/or an application by sending an email including name, address, e-mail address and telephone number to Cindy Nieman. Interviews for new candidates will be conducted before the end of the calendar year. Following interviews, candidates will be appointed by the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge and the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court.
