JUVENILE SERVICES Juvenile Services in the L.A. County Probation Department is made up of three areas: Detention Services which operates three juvenile halls; Residential Treatment Services that oversees camp operations and treatment services for youth who have been ordered into Camp Community Placement; and Juvenile Field Services that facilitates programs, referrals, and services for youth who are under probation supervision, but not detained within a juvenile correctional institution. Preventing youth from entering the juvenile justice system has a meaningful impact on the long-term success of these young people. For years, Probation has been actively engaged in diverting youth from the system and toward receiving support at home and through community-based organizations. In 2018, Probation committed $12 million in funding toward diversion programs. “L.A. County Probation is leading the way in developing innovative partnerships and programs, transforming the tradi- tional way that probation departments have historically done business. Under the groundbreaking guidance of Chief Terri McDonald and Deputy Chief Sheila Mitchell, the Probation Department has begun the implementation of the L.A. Model which focuses care on a more just and equitable future for clients.” — Harry Grammer, Founder and President of New Earth It is the mission of Juvenile Services to promote and support healthy youth development that is trauma-responsive, strength-based and culturally competent by partnering with families and the community.
