Juvenile Supervision Center
The Juvenile Supervision Center (JSC) is a 24/7 safe, supervised space for youth ages 10-17 who have been picked up for truancy, curfew, or low level offenses by law enforcement in Hennepin County.
Youth are assessed for strengths and risk factors, connected to resources, returned to school or home, and given appropriate follow-up services. These include crisis intervention or case management.
The JSC provides immediate intervention to help prevent youth from becoming the victims of violent crimes. It offers a positive alternative to jail.
