During his career, he also had the opportunity work in the secure juvenile environment at the JJC’s Johnstone Campus, where he served as the Assistant Superintendent for both Juvenile Medium Security Facility and the Juvenile Reception and Assessment Center.
In 2005, Mr. Montalbano was appointed as the Director of the JJC’s Office of Community Programs, where he oversaw the consolidation of community programs and the realignment of resources to better serve special juvenile populations including female juveniles, those with serious substance addiction and mental health needs, as well as residents preparing to transition to their home communities.
