Juvenile Probation Services Division (JPSD)
JPSD - The division, much like the APSD, prepares pre-disposition reports designed to provide the court and the parties with information which is crucial in making well informed decisions. The JPSD supervises approximately 50 offenders on standard probation, 15 offenders on intensive probation and 50 on diversion. Staff makes use of evidence based practices to maximize the likelihood offenders will make better choices and not require more costly interventions. Officers are committed to serving victims and make recommendations to the court which consider the best interests of the offender and the community. JPSD staff is also responsible for collecting restitution owed to victims and ensuring juveniles receive much needed treatment and educational services. Lastly, the division operates a community restitution work program which enables offenders to make amends for what they did.
