The majority of the juveniles adjudicated and placed on formal probation will remain at home under various levels of supervision. Those juveniles on formal probation are supervised by Field Services. Juveniles can be placed on formal probation ranging from 6 months and up to their 18th birthday. When a juvenile has been declared delinquent, the court sets the rules of probation.
The field division has four distinct units comprised of twenty-seven full time employees. Once a child is placed on probation, they report with their parent or guardian to the Field Services Division for a Post Court Interview(PCI). During the PCI, an officer explains the rules of probation and expectations of both the parent and child. The parent and child also attend community service orientation and receive a work schedule. While under supervision, the juvenile is subject to drug testing, curfew inspections at home and school, reporting monthly, reporting weekly (ISP), twenty-four hour curfew, performance of community service restitution and payment of probation fees and any restitution ordered.
