Community Supervision (Probation)
About Probation
The Community Supervision (Probation) Unit screens all Juvenile Court referrals, makes recommendations to the court regarding the need for detention, prepares predisposition reports, and directly supervises youthful offenders. Probation staff assigned to this department work with individual youth and families to provide relevant rehabilitative juvenile probation services and programs consistent with community standards and public safety.  

Probation Units
Units within this department are:
  • Intake/Investigation 
  • Alternative Detention Services 
  • Community Supervision
    This unit provides community supervision to moderate- and high-risk youth who are placed on probation by the court. The needs of the youth and family are determined by a risk assessment process which is administered to every youth prior to being placed on probation. The risk assessment process enables the probation officer, the youth and family to focus on certain domains in his/her life that contribute to the offending behavior. The youth and family are referred to services to address these areas. While providing case management services to the families, probation officers are also responsible for ensuring accountability and community safety.
