What aspects of the juvenile justice system do you work with? How do you help juveniles at risk? I am a detentions officer at CoreCivic in Nashville, Tennessee. I work with adults, families, and also juveniles. With Juveniles my role is to maintain the safety, security, and the rehabilitation of juveniles at risk. I support and supervise their daily activities in the facility, supervise meals, and get them involved into juvenile probation programs. 2. Why did you choose this career? What do you enjoy about working with juveniles? What are the biggest challenges? I chose this career because as most detentions/corrections officers want to help people and help change lives. I believe in reforming the juveniles at a young age so they do not pose a threat to themselves and the community when they become adults. I enjoy working with juveniles because being around them keeps me young at heart. One of the challenges working with juveniles is that at times, they do not understand fully from right and wrong and are careless of consequences which makes it difficult to rehabilitate. 3. What have you learned from your mistakes (or others’ mistakes) while working with juveniles? A mistake I made my first few months on the job was talking to the juveniles as if they were criminals instead of showing sympathy and empathy. I learned talking to them as human beings made my job a lot easier without them disliking me. 4. What policy, procedure, or other aspect of the juvenile justice system would you change to improve it? I would not change a thing in the policy and procedures in the juvenile justice system. I feel the standards of the juvenile system is up to par in regards of the rehabilitation and the success of reintegration of juveniles back into the community. 5. Has your career been rewarding, knowing that what you do is providing a role model example and changing the lives of youths? Why? Yes. My job is very rewarding knowing that what I do everyday is changing lives. The fact that I can build a relationship, provide guidance, and mentor the juveniles gives me purpose in life.

What is your job title? What do you do in your role? What aspects of the juvenile justice system do you work with? How do you help juveniles at risk? My job title is a youth correctional counselor. I specialize in working together with young offenders through the provision of essential counseling services to them while inside the juvenile detention facility. I conduct my services with the department of youth in the juvenile justice system empowering them with the necessary skills. The key aspect of this facility is to assess the needs of these youths who are found guilty and assist them through rehabilitation. The juvenile at risk is assisted through isolation and offering stiff rules together with guidance measures. 2. Why did you choose this career? What do you enjoy about working with juveniles? What are the biggest challenges? I chose to be a youth correctional counselor due to the necessary attention and the desire to serve juveniles in trouble. I enjoy working with juveniles due to the support they receive is converted into serving the community while correcting their deeds. The biggest challenge in this role is the limited time allocated in coming into contact with the juveniles. This has contributed to minimum advisory and guidance services offered to all the affected juveniles. Besides, the increasing number of juveniles poses a challenge due to the limited resources available. 3. What have you learned from your mistakes (or others’ mistakes) while working with juveniles? I have treated my mistakes as lessons and I have learned to be patient in this responsibility. These juveniles need time to adjust and be corrected and therefore, the art of patience is needed to avoid releasing juveniles who are yet to be corrected. JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY INTERVIEW 3 4. What policy, procedure, or other aspects of the juvenile justice system would you change to improve it? The procedure and time allocation remain a challenge in this facility. Consequently, the policy of time and the process that involves the juveniles to be availed in my department could be altered to enable efficient services. 5. What major advice can you give to youths and persons aspiring to be like you? My advice to the youths and other people aspiring to be youth correctional councilors in the juvenile system is to master the virtue of patience, hope, prudence, and accountability. This will assist them in keeping accurate records with their respective juveniles and achieving their desired dream.

EFFECTS ON THE JUVENILE SYSTEM
 Communities have been involved in enforcing juvenile justice mainly in areas such
as preventing the use of drugs and substance abuse.
 Devoting resources to community based solutions has helped American youths to
access support services to aid correction.
 The police have been trained to use discretion in referring youths to these
institutions. In instances they even work in these facilities.
 Despite the criticism against the courts they have tried to reduce juvenile
recidivism. The Supreme Court even ruled on juvenile sentencing prohibiting
serious punishments on juveniles.
 The Supreme Courts ruling is meant to reshape the mode of juvenile justice from
one viewed as cruel to one that speaks hope. Rehabilitation for instance has
become one of the most used correctional mode on juveniles (Zimring, 2018).

EFFECTIVENESS OF THE STATE
 All states across the US are trying to establish systems of care by considering mental health and other
related needs more closely in the youth offenders.
 By so doing, they will not only develop an understanding around the challenges facing them but also
device best ways to overcome them.

 Restorative justice is therefore a way most states are turning towards since its based on a principle of
repairing the harm caused by crimes committed by juveniles.
 Tennessee has been on the forefront in introducing rehabilitation as a restorative means of justice.
 This has seen a decrease in the number of recidivism among juveniles in the State of Tennessee since
the year 1995 ("time has come to reform juvenile justice in Tennessee," 2018).

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
 Community safety is a primary element to all aspects of the Tennessee Department of
Children’s Services.
 The body allocates resources, services, and supervision are based on results of a validated
risk and needs assessment.

 The body has made it easier for the State’s Juvenile system to place probation officers.
 The department has also been addressing the needs of delinquent teenagers adjudicated
to state custody.
 The community is highly involved in an intensive probation program for ‘at risk’ juvenile
delinquents.
 A limitation of resources however holds back these programs from gaining full
