Intensive Probation Services

The Intensive Probation Services (IPS) Program provides increased supervision for juveniles struggling to maintain law abiding behavior in the community. IPS provides increased monitoring though frequent contact in the community, homes and schools. Electronic monitoring (GPS) is regularly used for enhanced supervision and enforcing restrictions.

Juveniles on IPS must abide by a curfew depending on their level of supervision within the program, refrain from operating a motor vehicle, remain in the county unless given prior authorization to leave and are restricted from associating with others who are in the juvenile or criminal justice systems.  Each youth on IPS receives case planning services to develop a strategy to successfully complete the program.  Referrals are made to appropriate programs and services such as individual, family and group counseling, substance abuse treatment, employment services, and community service projects.
