The Committee on Juvenile Courts (COJC) was established to facilitate communication and problem solving among the juvenile court judges in regard to juvenile court matters.  The COJC assists the Committee on Superior Court and the Arizona Judicial Council in the development and implementation of policies designed to improve the quality of justice; access to courts; and efficiency in court operations.  It identifies the needs of the juvenile court for all children facing delinquency and dependency issues within the jurisdiction of the court and for children otherwise involved in the judicial system.  The Committee advocates for fair and equal treatment of children, plans for future developments of the juvenile system, and recommends uniform policies and procedures to improve juvenile court operations.
