Sex Offender Program Certification

Pursuant to the enactment of Senate Bill 10, juvenile sex offender treatment programs can make requests to the Ohio Department of Youth Services (ODYS) for certification. Per 2950.15, certain juvenile offender registrants who are petitioning for early termination of the duty to register are required to have completed a certified sex offender program. Per 2950.16 of the Ohio Revised Code requires ODYS to periodically inspect and certify sex offender and child-victim offender treatment programs that request certification. ODYS has established the Juvenile Sex Offender Treatment Program Certification Advisory Board to recommend to the Department programs that meet the standards for certification or recertification.

The Juvenile Sex Offender Treatment Program Certification Advisory Board will work with each program provider to ensure any implementation related questions or guidance issues are answered.
