Juvenile law is the unique body of law that applies specifically to juvenile offenders.  While many constitutional rights are the same for both minors and adults, there are some key differences where the law treats a minor differently than an adult, especially in the area of interrogations. This class is designed to provide law enforcement officers and criminal investigators with an overview of the juvenile justice system and specific laws related to taking a juvenile into custody, juvenile interrogations, juvenile searches, fingerprinting and photographing juveniles, and more. This training will inform law enforcement officers and investigators of the structural components of the juvenile justice system and the stages of criminal process from the detection of crime and arrest, investigation, and through pre-trial processes.

The instructor, Lt. Butch Matjeka, has been teaching issues in criminal law for over 35 years and is a 46-year law enforcement veteran currently serving as the Criminal Investigation Lieutenant with the Kendall County Sheriff's Office. Lt. Matjeka retired from the San Antonio Police Department after 34 years of service and served on Patrol, was the lead instructor for all criminal law courses at the SAPD Training Academy and spent ten and a half years as a murder detective and six and a half years as a Homicide Unit sergeant and served as the lead investigator in officer involved shooting cases. Lt. Matjeka also served as an investigator with the Bexar County District Attorney's Office for two years prior to his assignment with the Kendall County Sheriff's Office.
