About Us

Serving Utah’s Children
The Centers were originally established to serve children 17 years of age or younger who are victims of alleged sexual or physical abuse. In recent years, there has been an increased demand for services for other crimes involving children, such as domestic violence, drug endangerment, and internet exploitation. 

Child Friendly Facility
Each Center is designed to make children feel comfortable and safe when they are meeting with investigators and team members about allegations of abuse. 

Multi-disciplinary Team Investigation
Professionals from several different agencies collaborate on each child’s case. The team approach increases coordination among child protection and criminal justice agencies, allowing them to track a child’s progress through the investigation, judicial process, and treatment. 

A Private/Public Partnership
Children’s Justice Centers are private/public partnerships funded through numerous sources:
  • State/Legislative Funding
  • Federal Funding
  • Local Government Support
  • National Children’s Alliance
  • Government and Foundation Grants
  • Community Donations
  • Volunteer Programs
Forensic Interviews 
Specially trained professionals talk to children about the allegations of abuse. The goal is to minimize trauma to the child by reducing the number of times a child must talk about his or her experiences. 

Medical Examinations
The Davis County Children’s Justice Center has an on-site examination room staffed with medical professionals from Primary Children’s Hospital’s Safe and Healthy Families Unit. The service allows medical professionals to collect evidence and safeguard children’s health. 

Support Services
The Centers provide abused children and their families with referral for support services, such as therapy, crime victim reparations, medical care and victim resources. 

Professional Training
Multi-disciplinary teams receive ongoing training to ensure that Utah’s children receive the most professional care possible.
