Kentucky's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. Nearly all community supervision in Kentucky is administered by the Department of Juvenile Justice, a state independent juvenile corrections agency, across four service regions. Fayette County has the only locally court administered probation department in the state. Secure detention is similar in that most facilities are administered by DJJ. The DJJ administers both commitments to state public facilities and aftercare services for youth leaving state facilities.
