The Council replaced the Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee, first appointed by the Governor in 1980 to comply with the requirements of the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended (P.L. 93-415, 42 U.S.C., sec. 5633 (a)).

As a subcommittee of the Governor's Advisory Board for Justice Administration, the Council reformed in 1992 (Executive Order 01.01.1992.02). In 1995, the Council transferred to the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention (Executive Order 01.01.1995.18) and, in June 2002, to the Department of Juvenile Justice, now the Department of Juvenile Services (Executive Order 01.01.2002.02).

The Council advised the Governor and State agencies on the juvenile justice system and prevention of juvenile delinquency. The Council also was the designated State agency to receive formula grant funds under provisions of the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-415), as amended by the Juvenile Justice Amendments of 1992 (P.L. 102-586). In accordance with the federal act, the Council developed an annual plan, established grant procedures, and awarded grants to State and local government agencies for projects that support juvenile justice and prevent delinquency.
