Section: Intervention unit response

Statute: 2A:4A-78

A crisis intervention response shall consist of immediate interviews with the parents and juvenile involved by one or more crisis intervention workers. Where the juvenile is not in the home, or in the custody of the police, the intervention workers shall attempt to interview the juvenile wherever the juvenile may be found. The juvenile and family shall be advised of the purpose of the unit and of the emphasis upon the voluntary exhaustion of community services prior to court involvement. The unit shall make all reasonable efforts to keep the family intact consistent with the physical safety and mental well-being of the juvenile by obtaining, where possible, written agreement of the family to accept recommendations which may include, but are not limited to, referral to appropriate services and agencies. L.1982, c. 80, s. 3, eff. Dec. 31, 1983.
