In the current society there are authorized governmental and non-governmental agencies formed with a motive of correcting and providing proper guidance to such children regarding their age group. The current strategy is different from the one in the past where rebellious children were treated as outcasts. Therefore, this paper focuses on such agencies available in Ocean County New Jersey, their goals, purpose, and methods of intervention applied by each one of them about our case study.
Observable and based on research, the Ocean County New Jersey; the Department of Local Justice juvenile services has availed many resources of significance to the residents who are essential in the provision of necessary intervention practices as far as discipline and respect to the rule of law is concerned. Some of the available agency centers are as follows in addition to the Central Department of Juvenile services, the New Jersey department of correction and department of human services. These agencies provide several different and standard services concerning the age of the victim. Some of the available resources and facilities are children’s homes, community service facilities and land as a resource to be used for various practices. The choice of the agency to be selected purely depends on the nature of the services required, (Hess, 2012).
Fundamentally, for a child to be selected and join the Department of Juvenile Service in Ocean County adjacent to Sunset Avenue, legal process must be followed. The parent should first report the case and assessment done by the concerned officers. It is then followed by the agreement between the parent and the agency based on the terms and conditions of the service after which the child is to be admitted and start engaging in the services. This office offers school mentorship program and also provides shelter where children are detained. The strategy is essential to a fourteen-year-old child as the two services are essential in behavior change especially when defects arise from the environment and peer influence.

Within this broad agency, there is a small section concerned with family issues and which is capable of correcting behavior by involving children in the provision of community services and providing other educational programs. Such services remain the core of their operation as it streamlines the effort of the rebellious children towards engaging in activities that are very helpful to the society at large. The highlighted premises are linked to the mission and purpose of the agency, which is linked to solving family case works upon request.
Third agency is the Department of Correction, which focuses on safeguarding prisons and at the same time controls three youth institutions within the county. It is their goal to ensure safety to those in custody, the staff and other concerned parties that are in need of their services. This agency provides services for education, recreation, library and many others, which are involving. The critical step in intervention practice is changing the attitudes of the child, which can be through identifying their potential areas which maybe through their talents and other programs. Parental access is mainly through request and agreements from the office based on the given reports by parents and other relevant observers, (Bonnie, 2013).
In conclusion, the New Jersey area has many justice service agencies responsible for reinforcing the implemented laws and ensuring that they are obeyed by every citizen. Additionally, there are other provisions given to family issues especially in line with the rebellious children proving to be troublesome and of bad influence to the society. Therefore, such children have special programs provided by the national and county government, which can be of significance to them and society.
