The JJC has made a survey for young people (those 18 or younger) about the juvenile justice system and it would help us a lot if you filled out! It's anonymous and only takes 2 minutes, thank you!

We are preparing questions that would generally be asked if arrested or in the courtroom #YouthVS system

DID YOU KNOW??? There are no laws prohibiting the police from telling lies when you are arrested in order to get you to TALK???

Currently researching the answers to questions we would have if we were ever arrested. #JJCSQUAD
