Judges’ Council Above Reproach

As president of the National Juvenile Court Services Association, I am concerned by recent press reports regarding the operations of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ).

NCJFCJ sets the standard for quality in the delivery of juvenile justice service across the nation. Its exemplary record speaks for itself. From the perspective of the National Juvenile Court Services Association, NCJFCJ’s leadership – in particular Executive Director Mary Mentaberry’s leadership – exemplifies good stewardship and integrity in place, in principle and in all actions.

As NCJFCJ strives for excellence, it continues to raise the bar for juvenile justice professionals, whether it is offering state-of-the-art training, evidence-based model programming or hands-on technical assistance. The National Juvenile Court Services Association is proud of our partnership with NCJFCJ and applauds its transparency and irrefutable ethical practices.
