Welcome

The Division’s current goals are to improve relations between staff and the youth we serve.  By doing this, the residents will see staff as someone they can communicate with, depend on and trust.  We strive to operate safe facilities free from humiliation, ridicule and bullying and promote a zero tolerance for violence. The West Virginia Division of Juvenile Services follows national best practice models on dealing with youth in the juvenile justice system.
