Washoe County Department of Juvenile Services

Under the direction of the Second Judicial District Court, Family Division Juvenile Services provides probation supervision, case management, detention, and community services to juveniles ages 10 to 18 referred by law enforcement for status and delinquent offenses in Washoe County. Our juvenile justice approach is balanced by supporting positive juvenile and family development, community safety, holding juveniles accountable, and providing victim restoration services.  In August of 2023, Juvenile Services started providing MST Services to youth at risk of out of home placement, provided by two Mental Health Counselors.
