System of Accountability
Statement of Principles
The Oregon Juvenile Department Directors Association (OJDDA) supports the principle of system accountability. County juvenile departments are committed to providing effective and efficient services to promote public safety and prevent youth from returning to criminal behavior. In partnership with the Oregon Youth Authority, the Court, private providers, and other key organizations, juvenile departments share responsibility for the effectiveness of the juvenile justice system. OJDDA also supports consistent, comparable information to review programs and performance, and endorses compliance with audit requirements in ORS 419C.001.
