Our Mission:

"The Butte County Probation Department is committed to enhancing public safety through rehabilitation and accountability."

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.


Juvenile Supervision Unit

Supervises juveniles released to the community on probation and monitors compliance with the conditions of probation. The Juvenile Supervision Unit also monitors juveniles participating in wraparound services, GPS monitoring, the Minor Adjustments Program (MAP), and the Camp Condor program.


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.
