Juvenile Crime Prevention Council

Cumberland County partners with the N.C. Department of Public Safety (NCDPS) to fund a local Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC). This partnership is part of a strategy by the NCDPS to mobilize communities to create a multi-disciplinary continuum of care that includes prevention programs for children, early intervention for juvenile offenders, and graduated sanctions for repeat offenders.

The majority of JCPC activities are funded through State and County dollars. Cumberland County has total fiduciary responsibility for local and state dollars. 

For technical assistance to programs funded with JCPC and other DPS funds, as well as assistance for any agency interested in applying for funding, please contact:
