Community Probation Services

Court-Ordered Probation Supervision


Juveniles with lengthy or serious referral histories may be placed on court-ordered probation supervision for unlawful behavior for a period not exceeding their 18th birthday. Probation supervision allows for public safety and teaches juveniles to be accountable for delinquent conduct. While on supervision in the community, a probation officer is assigned to make regular contact with the juvenile to monitor the juvenile's compliance with the court's orders. Probation supervision is implemented in partnership with the families to ensure success and promote long-term positive behavioural change. Contacts during supervision vary in frequency from multiple times weekly to monthly, based on assessment of the juvenile's specific needs, involvement with community resources, and level of cooperation. A variety of community-based resources may be utilized to aid the juvenile in complying with court-ordered terms and conditions of probation.

Community Services Restitution (CSR)


Community Service Restitution (CSR) is a program in which juveniles perform a period of community service in a non-profit community agency, an educational facility or governmental facility. The Juvenile Court utilizes CSR as a condition of probation for juvenile involved offenses which result in property loss or personal injury. This program constitutes a strategy to help juveniles assume responsibility for their actions and to be responsive to community and victim concerns. It also provides a positive experience in community involvement and socialization. CSR may be voluntary or court-ordered and participants typically perform between 30 to 100 hours of community service.
