The State of Idaho Legislative policy states the Juvenile Corrections System will be based on the Balanced Approach: Accountability, Competency Development, and Community Protection
Where a juvenile has been found to be within the purview of the Juvenile Corrections Act, the Court shall impose a sentence that will protect the community, hold the juvenile accountable for his/her actions, and assist the juvenile in developing skills to become a contributing member of a diverse community.
It is further the policy of the State of Idaho that the parents or other legal guardians of the juvenile offender participate in the accomplishment of these goals through participation in counseling and treatment designed to develop positive parenting skills and an understanding of the family’s role in the juvenile’s behavior. It is also the intent of the legislature that the parents or legal guardians of the juvenile offenders be held accountable, where appropriate, through monetary reimbursement for supervision and confinement of the juvenile offender, and restitution to the victim of the juvenile’s delinquent acts.
Valley County Juvenile Probation is dedicated to provide supervision to juvenile offenders, providing support services to the juvenile and their family while ensuring community safety through accountability. The department works closely with law enforcement, treatment providers and other community resources to aid in this process.
