Tennessee's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. Secure detention in Tennessee is administered locally by executive (county commission/boards or private contractors) or judicial (juvenile courts) agencies. Community supervision in Tennessee is administered by the Department of Children’s Services’ Division of Juvenile Justice, a state executive agency, and local juvenile courts. DJJ also administers commitments to state public facilities and aftercare services for those youth leaving state facilities.
