Arizona Superior Court in Pima County



The Juvenile Probation Department of Pima County Juvenile Court, under the leadership of the Chief Juvenile Probation Officer and in concert with its more than 120 employees, is responsible for supervising and serving youth involved in the Pima County juvenile justice system.

Funded by Pima County, the State of Arizona, and through various funding grants, the juvenile probation department applies Evidence-Based Practices (EBP’s) intended to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth in the community.

Most youth referred to the juvenile probation department are given the opportunity to manage their referral without being placed on probation. In fact, 65% of juvenile referrals are diverted from a formal court process, receiving a diversion “consequence” instead. Each successful outcome reinforces the court’s approach that CHARACTER COUNTS!®, everywhere, all the time.

Juvenile Probation also directs innovative programs, such as “ACES,” the court’s 24/7 Alternative Community Engagement Services Center, and “Crossroads,” a five-week cognitive skills training program, led by specially trained juvenile probation and surveillance officers. All programs, as well as the court’s adherence to the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative system (JDAI), support the “Positive Change – Successful Youth” objective of the juvenile court.

The Juvenile Probation Department is proud to include practices and policies aligned with research-based, outcome-focused operations, and to treat youth and families with fairness, respect, and professionalism. Our department focuses on positively changing youth behaviors without compromising the safety and security of the Pima County community.
