Notice of Periodic Review
The Department of Juvenile Justice is reviewing the regulation entitled Standards for Juvenile Residential Facilities (6 VAC 35-140) to determine if the regulation should be terminated, amended or retained in its current form.

The Department seeks public comment regarding the regulation's essentiality in protecting the public safety, the regulation's effectiveness in achieving its intended specific and measurable goals, whether the regulation is clearly written and easily understandable, and suggestions as to less burdensome and intrusive alternatives to the regulations.

The goals of the regulation are:
1. to protect the citizens of the Commonwealth by confining delinquent juveniles who pose a threat to the public safety;
2. to provide a safe and secure environment for confined juveniles in which treatment and rehabilitative programming can be delivered;
3. to provide appropriate due process protections to confined juveniles.

Comments may be submitted until September 30, 2000 and may be directed to Mr. Donald Carignan, Regulatory Coordinator, at the Department of Juvenile Justice, P.O. Box 1110, Richmond, Virginia 23218-1110; or e-mailed to, or FAXED to (804)371-0773.
