Guam - From issues of parental involvement to youth seeking help from Mental Health, the Law Revision Committee on Juvenile Justice hopes that tackling these issues one at time will help the council move forward in achieving its goal. Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz who has led the committee since 2009 hopes to establish a website to help the change in personnel understands how to go about handling issues.

"Where all of these memorandum and SOPs that we're going to be coming up with will be archived so that a new probation officer or a new police officer or whoever's new, can say I can go to the juvenile justice website and I will be able to find how this is supposed to be done," he said.

Although resolving many of the issues don't necessarily require legislation, he does hope to introduce a measure to permanently establish the group as a permanent part of the committee on youth that would compose of the same officials currently overseeing it including GPD, DOE, Mental Health, DYA, Public Health, the Attorney General's Office and Superior Court Judge Arthur Barcinas.
