Juvenile Justice

Juvenile Justice focuses on the redirection of a juvenile’s behavior by holding the youth accountable and equipping them with skills to live responsibly and productively while protecting the public.

Delinquency Referrals are received from law enforcement agencies on youth ages 10-17 who have violated criminal codes, state or federal.

JIPS Referrals (Juveniles in Need of Protection and/or Services) involve youth under the age of 18 who are truant from home or school, uncontrollable at home or under the age of 10 who have committed a delinquent act.
