Juvenile Probation Unit
The Juvenile Probation Unit is responsible for all delinquency cases authorized by the Prosecutor. They assist the case through the adjudication process, when necessary. Once a case has been adjudicated, a caseworker prepares a social history report that includes corroborative information. This report makes recommendations to the court regarding disposition, taking into account both the needs of the child and protection of the community.
During post-disposition, the Juvenile Probation Unit assists in implementing court orders, including the monitoring of probation and restitution, community service, parental education, counseling, etc. They also monitor client compliance or noncompliance with court orders, and report to the court on a regular basis, making further recommendations when necessary.
