Delinquency & Dependency Caseflow Management Project

The Center for Families, Children & the Courts (CFCC), a division of the AOC, will coordinate and direct this project. CFCC is dedicated to improving the quality of justice and services to meet the diverse needs of children, youth, and families in the California courts. Through a multidisciplinary approach, CFCC seeks to ensure that the well-being of children, youth, and families is a high priority within the California judicial system; to encourage positive changes at both the trial and appellate court levels; and to provide leadership, outreach, and collaboration to ensure that court and community resources are available. To this end, CFCC is endeavoring to assist courts in the development of best practices to manage ever increasing caseloads and provide timely, effective services to California’s youth and families.

In 2005, the Center for Families, Children & the Courts (CFCC), a division of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) contracted with consultants to complete Criminal and Family Caseflow Management projects, which undertook an analysis of the management and processing of cases in California Criminal, as well as Family, court. The projects were intended to aid in understanding effective caseflow management techniques and to assist the Criminal and Family courts in applying those principles to existing practices, in an effort to improve the timely disposition of cases. The CFCC would like to continue these efforts with a survey of current practices and assistance in the development of effective caseflow management techniques to be applied in Juvenile Delinquency and Dependency courts. The awarded consultant will develop manuals and other workshop materials, and lead workshops in delinquency caseflow management techniques and processes.
