About JCPC

The Forsyth County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC)> is a state mandated Council (G. S. 143B-845) whose purpose is to reduce and prevent juvenile crime. Specific duties include:

  • Review the needs of juveniles in the County, who are at risk of delinquency or who have been adjudicated, undisciplined, or delinquent.
  • Review th eresources available to address those needs.
  • Prioritize community risk factors & determine th eservices needed to address those problem areas.
  • Submit a written funding plan to the county Commissioners for approval.
  • Increase public awareness of the causes of delinquency and strategies to reduce the problems.
  • Develop strategies to intervene, respond to, and treat the needs of juveniles at risk of delinquency.

The Department of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention (DJJDP) collaborates with the Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils (JCPC) in each county to galvanize community leaders, locally and statewide, to reduce, and prevent juvenile crime. JCPC board members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners and meet at least bi-monthly in each county. The meetings are open to the public, and all business is considered public information. DJJDP allocates millions of dollars to these councils annually, in which funding is used to subsidize local programs and services.

Funding Eligibility

The JCPC annually reviews the needs of juveniles in the County who are at risk of delinquency and/or who have been adjudicated by the court. Simultaneously, the Council surveys the resources available to address those needs, and prioritizes community risk factors for youth for families, and for the community, and determines the services needed to address those problem areas.

The grant cycle begins when the Council advertises the availability of funding and solicits requests from service providers in a Request for Proposals (RFP). Thereafter, agencies submit applications for the specific need to be addressed and make presentations to the Council at a scheduled JCPC meeting. After hearing all presentations, the Council devises its funding recommendations, which it then submits to the Board of County Commissioners for their consideration during budget deliberations, with a determination made in the adopted budget by the end of June of the prior fiscal year.
