DJJ 2021

A Limited Review of the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice and Follow Up to Our January 2017 Audit
April 2021


We conducted an audit of the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice in January 2017 and started a follow-up review of that audit in 2019. 

In September 2019, we received an audit request from the General Assembly asking us to review areas not originally covered in our 2017 audit and to give the status of all 74 recommendations made in that audit.

In March 2020, we surveyed all 1,206 DJJ employees to obtain their views on job satisfaction, security, education and medical services for juveniles, and other safety issues. 

We had a 61% response rate. We included the results of this survey in Appendix A of the report and we also included various responses to our open-ended questions throughout the report.
