Juvenile Division
Juvenile Supervision
Juvenile Probation provides comprehensive services to the youth, the community and the Juvenile Court. The principle mandated tasks accomplished by the division are the preparation of the investigative reports and dispositional recommendations to the Juvenile Court. In addition, the Probation Department supervises minors under the jurisdiction of the juvenile Court and holds them in compliance with Court Orders. The division provides comprehensive prevention, intervention and enforcement program service elements. Program elements include SARB, juvenile community service, a parenting program administered by probation staff, and multiple services provided within our Juvenile Detention Facility as well as in the community which the impacted youth and family can be referred to. Step Parent Adoptions: Pursuant to Family Code Section 9001, the Probation Department’s Juvenile Division is tasked with evaluating and reporting to the court regarding the parties and situation involving the request of a step parent adoption. Placement: When the Court deems it necessary, some youth are ordered to be placed into a placement setting outside of their previous living situation. When this occurs, the placement officer is tasked with ensuring the supervision of those youth and their placement into the appropriate setting. The children's services Continuum of Care Reform (CCR) efforts launched by the State in 2012 produced recommendations aimed at improving outcomes for youth removed from their homes and placed in congregate or foster care. In 2015, Assembly Bill (AB) 403 was approved by the Governor to further CCR efforts. Under the new law, group homes were restructured to comply with new licensure requirements to provide short-term specialized and intensive treatment and will only be used for children whose needs cannot be safely met initially in a family setting. Services are designed to transition youth back home or to another permanent family as soon as possible. All placement decisions utilize the Child and Family Teaming process. Juvenile Community Service: This program gives minors the opportunity to give back to their community by completing Community Service work hours. These hours can be worked off in the community via schools, parks, nonprofit organizations and county grounds. One of the highlights of our work program is maintaining the collaborative garden located on the grounds of our detention facility. The produce grown provides nourishment for the youth detained in the facility. In addition, any excess is given to the local health agency and local churches for the feeding of PATH (Poor And The Homeless). Truancy Program (SARB): This collaborative undertaking with Tehama County Schools targets truant youth. Monthly meetings with school officials, truancy officers, and the affected youth and family are conducted. If a contract with the youth and family is decided upon referrals to outreach services are provided. Periodic county wide truancy sweeps and close interaction with SARB and the Juvenile Court can impact school attendance. School Resource Officer (SRO): The SRO’s role is to enhance school security, provide appropriate counseling, foster relationships with students, their families, community resources, and provide law enforcement action and education.
