Welcome to the official website of the Juvenile Court of Clayton County, Georgia. Since its inception, Clayton County’s Juvenile Court has been the home of innovative programs and practices aimed at reducing the delinquency and dependency of the county’s youth involved with the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The same remains true today, with Clayton County Juvenile Court serving as a leader in innovation and reform within the state of Georgia and across the nation. Our CASA program and our work with the Clayton County Juvenile Justice Fund and Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative and Clayton County System of Care are often seen as models for other jurisdictions.
Using the principles of Balanced and Restorative Justice, Clayton County Juvenile Court strives to help produce a safe and secure community that utilizes best practices in prevention and treatment in collaboration with families, community-based organizations, and agency partners to ensure the well-being of our children.
We hope that you find this website helpful, and we invite you to review our latest annual report for a more in-depth look at the structure and work of Clayton County Juvenile Court. For the most current information on Juvenile Court programs and happenings, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
