Floyd County Indiana Juvenile Probation

The Floyd County Circuit Court Juvenile Probation department works with juveniles ordered to appear in the Floyd County Juvenile Court System or juveniles held in the Floyd County Juvenile Detention Center.

The statutory duties of probation officers are set forth in I.C. 11-13-1-3 and I.C.31-31-5-4. These duties include receiving and examining complaints and allegations concerning matters covered by juvenile law and make preliminary inquiries and investigations, implementing informal adjustments, supervising and assisting persons on probation consistent with conditions of probation imposed by the Court, notifying the Court when a violation of a condition of probation occurs, and cooperating with public and private agencies and other persons concerned with the treatment or welfare of persons on probation and assisting probationers in obtaining services from those agencies and persons.

In other words, if your child is in court only because of underage drinking, truancy, curfew violations, habitual disobedience, or runnng away, your child cannot be found guilty of being a delinquent  child unless the judge also finds that the behavior will not be corrected unless the court is involved with your child.
