What is the juvenile court process?

The Juvenile Court operates 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.
