Michigan

Michigan's delinquency services are organized at the both the state and local level. Community supervision is administered either by the Michigan Department of Human Services or local juvenile courts. The Bureau of Juvenile Justice, an independent juvenile justice agency, within the Michigan Department of Human Services administers commitments to state facilities, as well as, aftercare services for those youth leaving state facilities. Secure detention in Michigan is administered three ways: the majority of facilities are administered locally at the county level by either regional boards, or circuit courts, and a limited number are administered by the Michigan Department of Human Services.
