The main function of the CSU is to handle juvenile
delinquency and/or Child in Need of Services/Supervision, such as children who
are excessively truant from school or exhibit runaway behavior. Depending on
the severity, cases may be diverted at the Intake level or petitioned to the
court system. If a juvenile is found guilty, he or she may face a variety of
consequences, including Probation, restitution, community service, commitment
to Sheltercare or detention.
Department of Juvenile Justice protects the public by preparing court-involved
youth to be successful citizens.
The goal of the Court Service Unit is to provide appropriate services and referrals
to all youth and families who become involved in the juvenile court system. CSU
staff members complete detailed social history reports to determine the areas
of greatest need for court-involved youth. Information gathered in these
reports provides the framework for CSU staff to develop case-specific services
for the juvenile and the family.
