  Welcome to the home of the Brazoria County Juvenile Justice Department.
This site was designed to assist residents of Brazoria County in gaining a better
understanding of how the Juvenile Justice System works. 
 
     
  Thousands of juveniles enter the Juvenile Justice System each year. Not all of those individuals are what we would call "hardened criminals". Many end up in the system because they do not know or do not understand the laws and how they affect juveniles. This web page is designed to help parents, children, and adult leaders in the community understand the Juvenile Justice System. If the juveniles and those they look to for guidance understand the consequences of breaking the law, they will be less likely to end up in the system. The goal in producing this web page is to relieve some of the confusion caused by a system that no one looks at until they are in it.
