The Investigative Division of the Medical Examiner’s Office is tasked with gathering information regarding the medical and social history of the deceased, the events and actions leading up to the death of the deceased, and other pertinent investigative facts critical to the determination of cause and manner of death in each case. This information is reduced to writing and presented to the physicians in charge of the forensic investigation of a particular case at a daily meeting. The information obtained by the Investigators must be thorough, inclusive of all key facts and completed in a timely manner.
Percentage of juveniles under court ordered supervision for delinquency/CHINS offenses that are successfully discharged from supervision annually.

Of note, the typical probation term for FCJC-involved youth is two years.
Fulton County Arts and Culture makes performance and meeting facilities available for rental at its arts centers. This metric tracks the percent increase in rental fees revenue collected through facility rentals at the five arts and cultural centers throughout Fulton County. Rental agreements are made with individuals and organizations. Rental fees are comprised of security deposits, daily or part day usage fees and equipment rental fees.
Involving stakeholders and the community is integral to Fulton County Juvenile Court’s mission: first, to protect children and the community in matters brought before the court, to rehabilitate children and restore families; and second, to create opportunities for the community, partners, and stakeholders to actively engage in this mission. In addition, Juvenile Court provides youth a menu of pro-social evidence based diversionary programming as alternatives to the traditional adjudicatory process, and as alternatives to probation/detention. Most of these programs are revenue neutral, and therefore rely on volunteers to serve as mentors, tutors, and active participants. For example, The Leaning Club is a Saturday diversion program that utilizes Atlanta University Center volunteers to tutor youth in core subjects. Likewise, the Citizen Review Panel is composed of trained citizen volunteers who review the status of children in DFCS custody to ensure reasonable efforts are being made to either reunite the child with their family or otherwise find a permanent home/placement.
