Juvenile Units

Assessment  Unit

 The Assessment Unit processes all new referrals received from law enforcement agencies. If it is a “mandatory” (due to the underlying offense) referral, the case is referred to the District Attorney for processing. Assessment Unit officers also administer a risk/needs assessment tool to juveniles referred to the probation department to determine if probation supervision is warranted. If the juvenile’s risk to re-offend is assessed as “low” or “moderate” the Assessment Unit continues to handle the case.  If the juvenile is eventually placed on an informal contract, declared a ward of the court, or granted Deferred Entry of Judgment, their case is transferred to the Administrative caseload for supervision. If the juvenile’s risk to re-offend is assessed as “moderate high” or “high”, the case is transferred to the Juvenile Supervision Unit.

 

Regular Supervision Unit

Deputy Probation Officers (DPOs) supervise juveniles placed on community-based probation supervision.  DPOs assigned to designated communities provide case management services (e.g. assessment, orientation, contacts, service referrals, violations, court reports,) and work with minors, families, schools and other relevant resources to build on minor/family strengths, evaluate and make efforts to minimize risks and monitor compliance with court orders.

 

Placement Unit

The Placement Unit is responsible for locating an appropriate out-of-home placement for clients with unique treatment and residential requirements and providing ongoing case work services to support family reunification.


Transitional Age Youth Program (TAY)

The TAY program supervises young adults, 18 years to 21 years old, who are released into the community on probation.  The TAY program reintegrates its participants into the community by facilitating housing, employment, treatment, and education.
