The Juvenile Unit is comprised of the Juvenile Detective Unit and the Domestic Violence Unit. The Juvenile Unit works to ensure that the rights of juveniles are protected while balancing community safety and the development of our youth. In dealing with a juvenile, the Juvenile Detectives try to temper firmness with friendliness and offer evidence and council. In essence, it may be said that the unit’s approach to the problem of delinquency is a socio-police approach, employing the principals of psychology with the authority normally associated with a police officer. The Juvenile Unit will continue to support and encourage new approaches to the prevention and correction of delinquency. By utilizing the Juvenile Justice System, we will continue to strive and provide today’s youth with the necessary skills needed to become productive members of society.
