Default Intake and court services- CALIFORNIA


Intake and Court Services

Intake Services: Deputy Probation Officers assigned as intake officers are responsible for the initial assessment of juveniles booked into Juvenile Hall and/or cited by law enforcement for delinquent offenses.
For those minors delivered to Juvenile Hall for booking, a process must be followed which includes reviewing the arrest report, ensuring probable cause, and conducting a preliminary investigation. The Officer will prepare a detention report to the court including a narration of the circumstances of the offense, a statement from the minor's parents, a prior history of previous delinquent behavior and prior services the minor has received to alleviate removal from the parental home.
For non-custody referrals, an intake hearing before a Deputy Probation Officer is scheduled at which time the minor and his/her parent are interviewed along with a review of the law enforcement report. Depending upon the type of offense and individual factors of the case, the Probation Officer may conditionally dismiss the case, offer informal supervision, or refer the case to the District Attorney for review and possible filing of a petition to the Court. It should be noted, the Intake Deputy Probation Officer may not have discretion on many referrals since they are mandated by California Law to be forwarded to the District Attorney's Officer for Prosecution.
Court Services: Deputy Probation Officers assigned to juvenile court conduct case investigations and prepare social study reports and recommendations for the Juvenile Court. These reports, which require investigations into the offense, the background of the juvenile and family, and a victims statement and request for restitution, are produced to assist the Court with disposition in a case. Officers also prepare reports for disposition in fitness hearings, hearings pursuant to Section 241.1 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, and coordinate psychological evaluations and prepare case plans pursuant to legislative mandates for each minor. Lastly, officers in the court unit attend all Juvenile Court proceedings pursuant to the California Welfare and Institutions Code. Deputy Probation Officers attend Juvenile Court as a resource for the Court and as representatives of the Probation Department.
