Executive Director

Governor Chris Christie nominated Kevin M. Brown to the position of Executive Director of the Juvenile Justice Commission (JJC) on August 20, 2012. He served in an acting capacity until his appointment was confirmed by the New Jersey State Senate on May 13, 2013.
The JJC is the State’s centralized authority for planning and instituting policies, rehabilitative services, and programs designed to serve troubled youth, their families and communities. It also provides managerial and administrative oversight of statewide juvenile justice programs and services. As chief executive officer of New Jersey’s sole agency charged with the institution of juvenile justice reform, Mr. Brown oversees a strategic plan of action that establishes core goals and measured outcomes. He supervises 1,170 employees that are responsible for the care of juveniles committed to the custody of the JJC by the courts, facilitate programs that support local prevention and diversion efforts for court-involved youth through local partnerships, and supervise youth reentering communities receiving parole and aftercare services. As Executive Director, Mr. Brown manages an annual budget in excess of $119 million, with an additional educational budget of $11.2 million.
In his 31 years of service in juvenile justice community corrections and probation services, Mr. Brown has worked in many capacities including Juvenile Probation Officer (Camden), Vicinage Assistant Chief of Mercer Juvenile Probation, Chief of the Juvenile Intensive Supervision Program, and prior to joining the JJC, as Assistant Director of Probation Services at the Administrative Office of the Courts. As Assistant Director, Kevin M. Brown oversaw a probation staff of nearly 1,500 and was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Central Office for probation services. Mr. Brown has a wealth of experience in the administration and management of government agencies, as well as practical experience in counseling juveniles and working with community-based programs.
Kevin M. Brown graduated magna cum laude from North Carolina Central University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and political science. He is a certified criminal justice counselor and certified court manager. He also completed the U.S. Department of Justice’s Executive Orientation Program.
Mr. Brown serves as the NJ Compact Commissioner for the Interstate Commission for Juveniles, as a member of the State Employment and Training Commission and is affiliated with the American Correctional Association (ACA), Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA) as the CJCA Executive Board Treasurer and the NJ Council on Juvenile Justice System Improvement (CJJSI).
