Collaboration

Executive Law § 529-b requires participating municipalities to engage in a collaborative effort to support the successful planning and administration of STSJP-funded programs. To achieve this, OCFS recommends that there be a standing committee of STSJP stakeholders.

The STSJP plan must be developed in collaboration with the local social services districts, departments of probation, youth bureaus, local law enforcement, as well as with courts, service providers, schools, and youth development programs. Family, youth and community feedback should also be included during plan development.

Designating a Lead Agency

The chief executive/administrative official must designate a lead agency to plan and administer the Supervision and Treatment Services for Juveniles Program if the municipality elects to participate in STSJP. Which entity should administer services - probation or the local department of social services (LDSS)?
