Wyoming

Wyoming's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. The Division of Juvenile Services within the Department of Family Services (DFS), a state executive family and children services agency, administers probation through regional and county offices in most of the state. One municipal court (Casper Municipal Court) and two district courts (Campbell County Juvenile Probation Office in Gillette and Sweetwater County Probation Department in Green River) administer their own juvenile probation. Three secure detention centers are administered by county sheriff’s office, while one is owned by the Sheriff's office but contracted out and operated as a private facility. Commitments to state public facilities and aftercare services for youth leaving those facilities are administered by the Division of Juvenile Services within the DFS.
