Juvenile Probation Office

Juvenile probation is the oldest and most widely used vehicle through which a range of court-ordered services is rendered. Official duties include intake screening of cases referred to the Tribal Youth Court (deciding if it is necessary to go to formal proceedings or if another alternative is more appropriate), predispostion or pre-sentence investigation (uncovering the source of the conflict and why the child is behaving irresponsibly) and court-ordered supervision of juvenile offenders (assuring those on court-ordered probation complete the ordered terms).
