Social Investigations

About the Program
Juvenile Probation Officers provide the court with a complete social history investigation on most cases. A social history outlines the background and history of the juvenile and his/her family. This investigation involves staff and community service providers who meet to formulate recommendations for the judge at the sentencing hearing. The recommendations from the Probation Officer are based on Restorative Justice Principals which focus on community protection, accountability, and competency development.
