About Iron County Children's Justice Center
The Childrens Justice Center is a homelike facility that serves children and families who are experiencing the crisis and chaos that comes with the disclosure of significant physical or sexual abuse of a child. Audio and video equipment is used to preserve interviews for evidence and eliminate the need for multiple interviews.
The Center is designed to help children feel safe and comfortable so that they may begin to deal with the difficult and often frightening issues that surround abuse. The focus and function of the CJC is to reduce the trauma of the child abuse investigation and help the child feel safe to reveal the truth.
The CJC is a working public/private partnership for our children. The homelike facility and the treatment programs of the CJC are supported by private donations from the community. The CJC receives partial operational funding through an appropriation by the Utah State Legislature, administered by the Office of the Utah Attorney General.
