Multnomah County Department of Community Justice

About Multnomah County Department of Community Justice

The Department of Community Justice (DCJ) serves a vital role in protecting public safety and strengthening communities. We intervene to prevent the recurrence of crime among juvenile and adult defendants and offenders by supervising them and getting them the help they need to change problem behavior.

We provide supervision and treatment resources to youth, adults, families, and communities to address the underlying issues that drive crime. Our efforts are guided by evidence-based strategies to maximize our resources and results.
