Court Unit Services


The court unit deals with juveniles either when they first enter the system or are not already assigned to an officer.


A court officer's duties include:

  • Doing court investigations
  • Handling detention hearings
  • Placing juveniles on deferred prosecution (a type of informal probation)
  • Supervising juveniles during the court process until the case is disposed

The supervising period is called the Temporary Pre-Court Monitoring stage, in most cases the officers use this time to have the juveniles assessed by different professionals to determine their needs. Once a child's needs have been determined, a plan of action is created to address those needs.
