The majority of the youth served by the OJJ are referred to the court for supervision. Supervision services include either probation or parole. Probation is supervision of a youth who either remains at home or returns to the community following non-secure custody (residential placement). Parole is supervision of a youth released from a secure care facility to a less restrictive setting where continued supervision is provided by a probation officer
Research has shown that juvenile justice involved youth, treated in their home are most successful in the long run. OJJ works with youth and families to access an array of services based on their needs to help ensure this success.
