  • Accountability to victims and community: When an individual commits an offense, the offender incurs an obligation to individual victims and the community.
  • Youth competency development: Offenders who enter the juvenile justice system should be more capable when they leave than when they entered. 
  • Community safety: Juvenile justice has a responsibility to protect the public from juveniles in the system.
