Georgia

Georgia's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. In most counties, community supervision and aftercare services are provided by the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), an independent juvenile corrections agency.  In some urban counties, local juvenile courts administer community supervision and aftercare services. Other counties maintain a mixture of DJJ and local juvenile court service staff to provide community supervision services. DJJ also administers all secure detention and the commitment to state public facilities.
