    The Division of Juvenile Services(DJS) would suggest that the implementation of this program be coordinated by using a Task Force to study the existing programs in other states to best implement the West Virginia program. DJS would hire a coordinator to head up the task force and oversee the progress of the implementation process. The initial year fo the program would involve the largest costs to establish the program and acquire the initial consulting and training to implement the program. In subsequent years those costs would decrease significantly.
