  • For the purpose of this overview, delinquency services are considered to be centralized when a state agency administers community supervision, aftercare, and public commitment for the entire state.
  • States that are not considered to be centralized administer their delinquency services in a variety of ways. In some states, a state executive branch may administer community supervision services while a local juvenile court is responsible for aftercare. In other states, counties or regions differ in the way that their services are administered.
