About JLARC’s Juvenile Justice Study and Survey of Youth and Parents

The Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission (JLARC) is the Virginia legislature’s non-partisan research and oversight agency. JLARC has been directed to review Virginia’s juvenile justice system to identify ways it can be improved. As part of its research, JLARC staff are seeking input from many different stakeholders, including youth and families with direct involvement with the juvenile justice system.

JLARC has developed an online survey to collect input from those with direct involvement with the juvenile justice system within the past five years. Examples of individuals with direct involvement with the juvenile justice system include youth who have been released from Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Center or a juvenile detention center, youth who have been on probation, or parents of youth who are currently at Bon Air JCC or a juvenile detention center. 

Your input will be valuable in helping JLARC fully assess the system and identify potential opportunities for improvement.

The survey will be available on JLARC’s website through Friday, September 24, 2021.
