Abstract
The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is at a pivotal point in its history. New leadership, a new vision, and an optimistic and determined view of how we can serve the youth under our care are guiding sweeping changes that will positively impact kids, their families, our staff, and the state of South Carolina. The Broad River Road Complex (BRRC), DJJ's secure treatment center, is at the center of this by its inclusion in a voluntary and necessary settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). The agreement includes important changes in policies and training around investigations, uses of force, classification, isolation, and responses to youth-on-youth fights, among others. This paper addresses the plan to improve conditions at BRRC.
