4 History of DJS Beginning in the mid ‘90’s West Virginia experienced a significant increase in their serious juvenile offender population. West Virginia’s juvenile detention and correctional systems were unprepared for this increased demand for services. At that time, the five West Virginia juvenile detention centers were under the authority of the Department of Health and Human Resources. The two West Virginia juvenile correctional facilities – the West Virginia Industrial home for Youth and the Davis Center, were owned and operated by the Division of Corrections.

5 History of DJS In response to this increased demand, a Summit on Juvenile Justice was held in October 1996 and recommendations were made on issues of detention, prevention, and intervention and training. The recommendations from the Summit were incorporated into the goals for improvement of the juvenile justice system in the State. The conclusion was presented, with recommendations, to the Juvenile Foster Care, Detention, and Placement Legislative Task Force. The result was the creation of the Division of Juvenile Services, under the authority of the Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, from House bill 2680 which was passed on July 1, 1997.

6 The Beginning When DJS was formed there were two correctional facilities received from Division of Corrections, three detention centers received from Department of Health & Human Resources, one detention center received from Kanawha County, and one detention center under contractual agreement with Youth Services Systems. Most of the agency’s facilities are either new or have been recently renovated. This prevents many of the environmental conditions that are the result of antiquated structures.

9 Mission Statements The Division of Juvenile Services
The Division of Juvenile Services is committed to providing effective, beneficial services to youth in the Juvenile Justice System that promote positive development and accountability, while preserving community safety, and sustaining a work environment predicated upon principles of professionalism, with dignity and respect for all. Correctional Facilities Correctional facilities provide for a safe and secure environment for youth who have been sentenced to a State facility, for the staff of the facilities, and the community. Correctional Units provide positive development programs that will provide opportunity for rehabilitation of youth for return to the community as responsible and productive citizens.  Detention Centers The mission of the Detention Centers is to ensure safe, secure facilities with sufficient space for pre-dispositional youth, with quality services and progressive programming to achieve positive outcomes for detention residents.

13 Gene Spadaro Program The Gene Spadaro Juvenile Center is a multi-purpose facility. It is 24 beds and co-ed. It offers staff secure detention as well as a residential program. This facility is unique in that we have a contract with the Department of Health and Human Resources to provide a residential program for short term stabilization and specialized supervision of status offenders who exhibit chronic and recent (within 30 days) runaway behaviors. Placements of DHHR youth are not to last more than 30 days. These youth are required to have a status offense petition filed or a pending status offense case. The youth is in the legal custody of DHHR and physical custody of DJS during their placement. This ensures the youth remains safe while they receive needed programming and educational services. The facility facilitates a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) meeting within five days of placement. This agreement is in place while DHHR contracts for two status offender facilities in West Virginia – one in the north and one in the south. When those facilities are in place, we will re-evaluate our programming at the Gene Spadaro Juvenile Center.
