Probation and Community Intervention programs serve youth referred for law violations through assessment and referrals for services based on risk and needs. Interventions may include detention screening, intake, diversion, day treatment, probation, aftercare supervision, and linkage to service providers.
Residential facilities are for youth who are required by a judge to stay in the care of the Department of Juvenile Justice for an extended time. There are facilities located throughout Florida. A youth's placement depends on the commitment plan, not on the location of the arrest. For help finding your child's facility, contact his or her JPO.
