“To guide youth involved in juvenile justice to a successful future and support public safety.”
The Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services is the lead juvenile justice agency serving youth ordered to our care through the judicial system. We are responsible for assessing the needs of youth and collaborating with their families, school, and support systems to coordinate services aimed at addressing the factors that contributed to delinquency. DYRS offers supervision and services through Civil Citation, Community Services, Detention Services, Residential to Alternatives to Detention, and Secure Care Treatment. The goal of all of our programs is to reduce recidivism and promote positive outcomes.
