The mission of the Dutchess County J-FIRE Program is to provide a comprehensive, non-punitive, multidisciplinary approach to address the problem of juvenile firesetting by early identification, assessment, education, and intervention in an effort to protect lives and property.
The J-FIRE Program is a collaborative effort including:
• police officers
• probation officers
• mental health clinicians.
Rather than punish children who use fire, our goal is to improve safety for families. For more information please click on the link below.
