Juvenile Probation

The Juvenile Probation Office for Lancaster County is a state agency and is officially the District 3J State Probation Office.  Juvenile Probation is responsible for the risk assessment, case management and accountability of juveniles who are under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court.   Juvenile Probation is also responsible for the risk assessment process and detention decisions for those youth taken into custody by law enforcement for new offenses.

Our mission is to reduce risk factors in youth and build pro-social competencies so they can achieve their potential 
and be less likely to commit future law violations
