Probation is a legal status imposed by court order following an adjudication that determines that a child is delinquent, unruly, or a juvenile traffic offender. The child is permitted to remain in his or her home subject to supervision that is provided by the probation department.
To expedite the supervision of offenders and protection of the community, specialized caseloads have been developed. Officers working these caseloads become experts in a particular area and manage offenders who present unique or multiple problems. We provide the following types of probation:
- Non-Reporting: Provides Supervision to low risk youth throughout Mahoning County.
- Community-Based: Regular probation supervised by officers assigned to the various geographic areas of Mahoning County.
- Treatment Docket: Intensive Intervention for those individuals with substance abuse issues
- Special Needs: Provides supervision to youths who are adjudicated sex offenders or who have been diagnosed with mental health issues.
Mission of the Probation Officer: Provides for the protection of the community and its citizens by providing investigations, recommendations and reports for the Courts, enforcing orders of the Courts, and securing supervision and treatment for probationers who are under the jurisdiction of the Mahoning County Juvenile Court and its Probation Department. The Probation Department works to keep the community safe, to assist students in developing competencies, and to hold them accountable for their unlawful behaviors. We strive to remain diligent in our duty to monitor the youth on Probation in Mahoning County.
