Juvenile Community Intervention Services
Intensive Probation Program for "at risk" juvenile delinquents. This program provides the court with services such as but not limited to: home visits, school visits, office visits, drug screening, counseling, parenting, curfew monitoring & community service work. All referrals must be made through the juvenile court system. This program serves juvenile delinquents who are repeat offenders and very close to going into state custody.
Must be between the ages of 13-17 years old and have one previous delinquent conviction and one current delinquent charge. A risk assessment tool (YLS/CMI) is used to establish a risk score. Most of the juvenile offenders placed on Community Intervention Services have previously been on a local county or DCS probation and were either unsuccessful or picked up new charges. Once placed on this program by the court the "at risk" juvenile offenders are required to be in an accredited educational setting, report to scheduled meetings, complete community service hours, pass random drug screens, pay court costs & restitution if ordered by the court and abide by a curfew. Parents or guardians are also required to complete a ten hour parenting course. Most "at risk" juvenile offenders are able to complete this program in six months. However, in some cases the court will impose a determinate sentence and order the "at risk" juvenile offender to be supervised for a longer period of time. These "at risk" juvenile offenders are seen not less than once a week the entire time they are being supervised. This program serves Franklin, Marion, McMinn, Meigs & Rhea Counties.
