CLARIFICATION FOR FAQs
Juvenile Services Unit (JSU) and Field Operations
JSU provides intake, assessment, treatment planning, probation and parole services, supervision as well as reintegration to juveniles in all seventy-seven counties, except for those with duly constituted Juvenile Bureaus. The Juvenile Bureaus are located in Canadian, Comanche, Oklahoma and Tulsa counties. In those four (4) counties, JSU provides parole and reintegration services.
Services provided to youth are balanced with prevention, education, treatment and accountability to ensure public safety. A full continuum of services is provided to encourage and enhance positive, law-abiding behavior. Youth are provided a thorough risk and needs assessment, individualized treatment plan or rehabilitation plan along with services and programs designed to meet their needs and build upon their strengths.
JSU staff participate in all court proceedings for all Office of Juvenile Affairs (OJA) youth involved in the juvenile justice system. The continuum of care starts at the time a youth and their family come into a JSU office. Any proceedings that follow the initial contact with OJA will be supervised by JSU. Local JSU staff will follow the juveniles from intake, through the court process, out of home placement (if necessary) and in their return to the community.
JSU staff maintain an active role in their communities and in partnership with local Judiciary, District Attorneys, law enforcement and youth serving agencies to develop community based resources for youth and families throughout Oklahoma.
