School-Based & Special Programs

School Based Supervision consists of programs that serve youth and families within the five Supervisorial Districts. The programs and services are funded through the Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA) designed to provide a full spectrum of community-based services to both probation and at-risk youth. The school based program consists of Deputy Probation Officers (DPOs) assigned to High schools, Middle schools, Housing Developments and Park (afterschool enrichment) sites. These DPOs receive specialized training to provide individualized assessment, Strength-Based/Family-Centered case planning and management, and effective supervision. They work closely with parents and guardians in enforcing regular school attendance, behavior and school performance, as well as compliance with all other terms of probation. The primary objective of these services is to increase the opportunity for the probationers and /or at risk youth to achieve academic success, and to empower and support parents to become the primary charge agent for their children.
