In North Carolina, if a youth is 18 years old or younger and commits a crime, his or her case will be brought to the attention of staff within the Juvenile Justice section of the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Division of Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice. The division focuses on juvenile justice issues and at-risk youth in the state. The Juvenile Justice Section is committed to the reduction and prevention of juvenile delinquency by effectively intervening, educating and treating youth in order to strengthen families and increase public safety. Juvenile Justice goals include:

• Fostering communities that are safe from juvenile crime.
