In-person services to resume at Orange County Probation Department’s juvenile facilities

The Orange County Probation Department, in accordance with current public health orders, will resume in-person services at all juvenile facilities, including Juvenile Hall, the Youth Guidance Center, and the Youth Leadership Academy. This may be subject to change in compliance with public health orders and guidelines.

The Orange County Probation Department recognizes the importance of in-person contact for the youth we serve and their families, as well as the importance of visitation as an essential part of a youth’s rehabilitation. We look forward to resuming in-person services in a manner that prioritizes the safety of youth, their families, and our staff.

To mitigate COVID-19 risks, anyone entering these facilities must comply with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Guidance for Management of Coronavirus in Correctional and Detention Facilities. This includes wearing masks, having their temperature screened, and practicing physical distancing. Additionally, they will be provided with access to hand sanitizer while at the facility.

  1. Kids will try and get away with murder if they aren’t held accountable for the crimes they commit. My own son, now a middle aged adult, was a petty criminal, but a stay at a juvenile detention center near La Vern set him straight. while he still did some dumb things like going to jail for not paying a ticket or having an open container, he never did anything criminal that hurt or deprived another human being.
