Office of the Attorney General

Department of Juvenile Justice

The Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) staff work with juveniles who are referred to the Department from variety of sources to include law enforcement, parents, schools, the Court and other Cherokee Nation departments. The ultimate goal of the juvenile justice system is to rehabilitate our youth to become productive Cherokee Nation citizens and to break patterns of destructive behavior. The DJJ accomplishes this goal by assessing each juvenile and helping to provide referrals to needed services.

The DJJ provides intake services, referral services, and probation for court-involved youth. The DJJ works closely with other Tribal departments to provide holistic, wrap-around services to juveniles and their families/guardians to provide the best possible outcomes.
