Nevada

In Nevada, juvenile detention and delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, a state executive human services agency, administers commitment to state institutions. Aftercare services are administered by Juvenile Services, Division of Children and Family Services, Department of Health and Human Services and local executive entities. District courts administer probation services, except in Clark County where the county executive administers probation. Detention is primarily administered by county executive entities, but private contractors also administer detention in some counties. Probation departments operate secure detention facilities in the following counties: Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Elko, Humboldt, Mineral, and Washoe.
