Duties: Duties include the annual inspection of the Juvenile Hall, and any jail or locked facility within the county that was used in the preceding calendar year for the confinement for more than 24 hours of any minor, or, any police holding facility in which a minor was held in secure custody. Additionally, the Commission actively assists in the county's effort toward preventing and reducing juvenile delinquency.
