Juvenile Court Standards

The Juvenile Court Judges' Commission is responsible for developing standards governing aspects of the operation of juvenile courts and juvenile probation departments. To date, standards have been developed in twenty-five areas of juvenile court/juvenile probation functioning.  Four of these standards are required for participation in the Commission’s Juvenile Probation Services Grant program, while fifteen are advisory.  An additional six exist for departments that have Specialized Probation Services.
