It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this article to protect society from crime and delinquency by helping counties maintain and improve local correctional systems and crime and delinquency prevention programs by encouraging the continued availability of county operated juvenile correctional facilities, and by providing funding for services required or authorized by Chapter 1071 of the Statutes of 1976. It is also the intent of the Legislature to reduce the administrative costs of justice system programs, to provide maximum flexibility in meeting local needs in the delivery of services, and to enhance justice system planning and coordination efforts at the state and local levels.
