What should I do if I get cited/arrested by the Police?

All youth who are cited/arrested by law enforcement agencies are referred to the Probation Department, either by the issuing of a citation or by booking into the Juvenile Facility. A Deputy Probation Officer will assess whether youth arrested for a suspected law violation should be disposed by counseling and releasing the youth, referring the youth and/or family to a community counseling agency, placing the youth on informal probation or referring to the District Attorney to request a petition be filed with the court.
