These Acts revise a number of Code sections relating to juvenile law and proceedings. They define juvenile traffic offenses and delinquent offenses; define exclusive original jurisdiction over all juvenile traffic offenses to the juvenile court; require and official record be kept of juvenile traffic and delinquent offenses; strengthen the public policy that restraints on juveniles prior to adjudication are not preferred; and combine the Commission on Children and Youth with the Juvenile Justice Coordination Council.
