Washoe County Department of Juvenile Services

Our mission is to help create a safer community by providing a continuum of services and sanctions to at-risk youth and their families
Under the direction of the Family Division, 2nd Judicial District Court, Juvenile Services provides probation, case management, and detention services to court wards and at-risk youth ages 10 to 18 in Washoe County.
Our juvenile justice approach is balanced by supporting positive youth and family development, community safety, victim’s rights, and offender accountability.
