Office of Juvenile System Oversight
The Office of Juvenile System Oversight (OJSO) has the responsibility to investigate and report misfeasance and malfeasance within the children and youth service system, to inquire into areas of concern, and to provide independent monitoring of residential and non-residential services to children. The OJSO is to ensure that agencies are complying with their established responsibilities, which include state and federal laws, applicable accrediting and licensing standards, policies, and procedures, and applicable court orders.
Oklahoma Statute, Title 10, section 601.6 requires the Office of Juvenile System Oversight to conduct regular oversight visits at juvenile facilities throughout Oklahoma and to investigate complaints concerning the services received by the juveniles at these facilities. This statute also requires OJSO to investigate complaints concerning any area of the juvenile service system. Many of the reports prepared during OJSO investigations are available to the public through this web site.
