Juvenile Probation

The Guernsey County Juvenile Court Probation Department (located on the ground off of the Guernsey County Common Pleas Courthouse) is responsible for performing many duties beyond supervision of juveniles on Probation. The Probation Staff is involved in facilitating and participating in many programs to encourage growth and support to the juveniles they are involved with. The School Engagement Coordinator and Elementary School Truancy Officer along with the probation Officers are involved in the schools to not only check on students already under supervision but to attempt to intervene with families to prevent Court involvement if possible. The Probation Department can provide referrals to treatment service providers, out of home placements,(secure, non-secure, relative, drug/alcohol treatment centers, 13 day shelter care, foster care, group home, residential center, detention, Ohio Department of Youth Services, and Oakview Juvenile Residential), Creative Options Programs, Strengthening Families and Loving Solutions and Parent Project parenting programs. The Probation Department also arranges and supervises restitution and community service work for juveniles involved with the Court. The Probation Department makes themselves available for presentations to the schools and community concerning Juvenile Court and probation. They also address issues of cyber bullying and continually make themselves available to the juveniles they supervise to assist them with appropriate decision making. When necessary the Probation Department administers drug screens to juveniles on Probation and monitor juveniles on Electronic Monitoring House Arrest. Their everyday duties also include attending court hearings, completing risk assessments, school, home, community , and school visits, attending trainings, informal hearings and tobacco violation hearings, and advocating for the juveniles they are involved with as appropriate to help ensure their success and well-being.
