It is our mission to increase public safety by reducing juvenile delinquency through effective prevention, intervention and treatment services that strengthen families and turn around the lives of troubled youth. Help can simply be a phone call away.
Our office provides delinquency prevention service and programs designed to reduce juvenile crime and protect public safety. Our office addresses these problems by contracting for delinquency prevention services and awarding grants to local providers throughout the state. Our programs target high-risk juveniles and those who exhibit problem behaviors such as ungovernability, truancy, running away from home and other pre-delinquent behaviors.
