JJD 11: Case Closing and Follow-Up
is an orderly process, and follow-up assistance helps youth avoid future delinquency.
A written summary of the case record is provided to the court and the public agency with jurisdiction over the youth, and includes an assessment of:
- any unmet needs;
- the degree to which goals were or were not achieved; and
- reasons for success or failure.
Upon case closing, the organization notifies any collaborating service providers.
The organization follows up with youth to monitor progress and ensure they access needed services and supports.
As noted in JJD 10.02, another party, such as an aftercare case
manager, may have primary responsibility for providing follow-up services. When this is the case the organization may implement this standard by demonstrating that the other party conducts appropriate follow-up.
As a continuing resource for information, crisis management
, and support, the organization provides each youth with contact information for the organization or the aftercare provider, as appropriate.
