Excerpt from Area Report 12/15/14 (Jennifer D) - JJRA

DSHS Juvenile Justice and Rehabilitation Administration (JRA)

  • Juvenile Justice Reform Act– Several DTB’s have been filed related to the impacts of the implementation of the Prison Rape Elimination Act.  We had one meeting with management to address concerns over implementation.  A committee was formed between management and the union in order to work together during the process of complying with the Federal Regulations and we will be meeting later this month to discuss implementation.   The committee will continue to meet about this important issue.
  • Additionally, JJRA formed an ad hoc committee to address safety concerns specifically in the group homes.  We recently had a successful and informative meeting with another one to be scheduled early next year to continue to discuss safety concerns.
