July 29 – Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility Closure – Deliberations & Vote
July 29, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PDT
The Juvenile Justice Commission of Contra Costa County is holding a special session dedicated to the proposed closure of the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility. The Probation Department is proposing to relocate the youth and programming to the John A. Davis Juvenile Hall facility. The Event will be held via Zoom on July 29, 2020 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
While the meeting will be open to the public, the Agenda will largely focus on allowing the Commissioners to deliberate on the findings explored in the previous session. The Commission is not, at this time, planning to include time for county agencies or stakeholders to participate. The Commission strongly encourages the public to attend both sessions.
- The Commission will deliberate on the feedback provided in the previous special session, on July 22nd.
- The Commission will work to craft a policy statement.
- The Commission will hear public comment.
- The Commission will then vote on the policy statement for public release.
The agenda for the event can be found here.

Q: Will the event be recorded?
A: Yes. The recording will be posted publicly after the event.
Q: Will I be able to ask questions?
A: Zoom offers a Q&A feature. You will be able to use Zoom’s features to submit questions. As questions are submitted, you will be able to upvote and comment on them. The Commission and County agency participants cannot promise to answer every question; however, we will do their best to answer as many questions as they can.
If you would like to ask a question, please consider reading more about Zoom’s Q&A feature which will allow you to submit your questions in the Webinar.
Q: Will I be able to make a comment?
A: Yes. An agenda item for public comment will be on the agenda. Our current plan is to lay out the information for the public first. Public comment will be solicited at the beginning of the meeting and prior to the schedule vote.
If you would like to speak please consider reading more about Zoom’s “Raise Your Hand” feature. This will allow the Commission to see that you would like to speak. The Commission will unmute you when it is your turn.
Q: What is the Juvenile Justice Commission?
A: The Juvenile Justice Commission is an independent Commission under the Courts. The Commission has two key responsibilities:
- to inspect all facilities in the county that house youth by order of the Superior Court in Contra Costa County, and,
- to “inquire into the administration of the juvenile court law.”
The Commission interprets this mandate broadly. We serve as a public conscience in order to ensure youth who are involved with the “juvenile court law” are treated fairly and are provided the best possible opportunities. The Commission considers itself an advocate for these youth.
The Commissioners are all part-time volunteers.
