Working with your Child's Probation Officer

The goal of Juvenile Probation is to keep the community safe and support your child. You know your child best:


  • Communicate your child’s strengths to their PO. Juvenile Probation can use those strengths to provide support for your child and grow their confidence in the areas where they excel. 

  • Communicate any difficulties your child and/ or your family is experiencing. Your child’s PO can best support your child when they know what struggles your child is trying to navigate. 

  • Talk to your child’s PO about your child’s interests and goals. 

  • Talk to your child’s PO about your goals and dreams for your child. 

  • Your child’s PO will meet with your child based on their terms of probation and risk/needs assessment.

  • Develop and schedule to meet with your child’s PO regularly as well.
