Pursuant to Section 223(a)(14) of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act 2002, the state agency designated to administer the Formula Grants Program must "provide for an adequate system of monitoring jails, detention facilities, and non-secure facilities to insure that the core requirements of the Act are being upheld." The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is the state agency designated to administer the Formula Grants Program and as such, the Youth Division has been responsible for establishing the Compliance Monitoring program. The state's Compliance Monitor, inspects facilities, verifies data, and receives self-reported data from facilities regarding their compliance with "core" JJDP Act requirements (see Youth Division main page for list).
The state, through the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, is required to report annually to the Administrator of OJJDP on the results of our monitoring efforts for Sections 223(a)(11) and (13) of the JJDP Act. The report must demonstrate the extent of the state's compliance with these core requirements. If the state fails to demonstrate compliance, as defined by federal guidelines, the Federal Formula Grants allotment to the state will be reduced by 20% for each core requirement not being met. Local jurisdictions out of compliance with any of the first three core requirements, as determined by site visits, self-reported data, and on-sight verification of self-reported data, are ineligible to receive Title II Formula and Title IIe Challenge Grant funds, as well as Title V funds.
