Juveniles formally enter the court system when a referral is made. Referrals are submitted to the Juvenile Court and allege the juvenile committed a delinquent or incorrigible act. Referrals can be made by police, parents, school officials, probation officers, other agencies, or individuals requesting the juvenile court to assume jurisdiction over the juveniles’ conduct. Referrals can be “paper referrals” issued as citations or police reports, or “physical referrals” where the juvenile is arrested by law enforcement. Multiple offenses can be included in a referral.
