Florida

Delinquency services are centralized in Florida. The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) administers probation, aftercare, and commitment to state facilities. Juvenile probation officers solely supervise youth, as opposed to carrying caseloads with adults and youth. Probation and aftercare services, called “conditional release” in Florida, fall under the DJJ’s Probation and Community Intervention Office. Secure detention facilities are administered by the DJJ as well, with the exception of Marion, Polk, and Seminole counties which have locally administered detention facilities.
