Juveniles Under Court Supervision Celebrate Completion of Vocational Training
On Friday, June 23, 2006, nine participants of the New Jersey Judiciary’s Juvenile Intensive Supervision Program (JISP) will be honored for completing a 12-week vocational training program as part of their rehabilitation.
