In Nebraska, juvenile detention and delinquency services are organized at mostly the state level. The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, a state executive corrections agency, administers commitment to state facilities. Aftercare services are administered by the state Department of Health and Human Services. Detention is primarily administered by local executive entities such as county commissions or boards; some facilities are operated by private or non-profit organizations. The Office of Probation Administration, within the State Court Administrator's Office, administers probation services through probation districts.
