Department of Juvenile Services http://www.djs.state.md.us
By law, the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services ("DJS") is a child-serving agency responsible for assessing the individual needs of referred youth and providing intake, detention, probation, commitment, and after-care services.
DJS collaborates with youth, families, schools, community partners, law enforcement, and other public agencies to coordinate services and resources to contribute to safer communities.
About the Department of Juvenile Services
The Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) is an executive agency whose primary task is to appropriately manage, supervise and treat youth who are involved in the juvenile justice system in Maryland.
DJS is involved in nearly every stage of the juvenile justice process from the moment a youth is brought into a juvenile intake center by the police or as a result of a citizen complaint to the time when a youth returns to the community after completing treatment.
Role of DJS in Maryland Juvenile Justice System
The first step of the Juvenile Justice process in Maryland occurs when a youth is brought into one of DJS's intake offices across Maryland either because he or she was arrested by the police or is the subject of a citizen complaint.
DJS collaborates with law enforcement, courts, attorneys, other state agencies and service providers at various stages.
