You may “text” your Probation Officer by putting their email address into the “to” line (rather than a phone number). Please identify who you are, as only your phone number will come through. When your Probation Officer replies via email, it will come to you as a text message. Of note, many office staff are working remotely at this time so may be calling you from a blocked phone number.

The primary mission of the Juvenile Department is to hold youth offenders accountable and provide opportunities for reformation through a system of graduated sanctions, restorative justice and appropriate supervision. We work closely with a variety of state and local agencies to access appropriate treatment and service for youth and families based upon a variety of risk assessments. Another area of focus is prevention and education to help youth avoid the juvenile justice system.
