Juvenile Probation

The Bucks County Juvenile Court functions as both a judicial and an administrative agency primarily with respect to children under age 18, who are charged with juvenile delinquency for violating the criminal law. 

As a judicial agency, the Court determines questions of fact and law based on evidentiary hearings. As an administrative agency, the Court is responsible for providing custodial services and treatment including probation supervision and placement to children under the jurisdiction of this agency. All children arrested for committing felonies and misdemeanors are processed through the office. 

Twenty-four hour a day probation services are required for intake and for decisions concerning detention. To carry out its work, the Court employs a professional staff of 37 Juvenile Probation Officers and managerial, 9 clerical and 4 Victim Witness, and 9 fiscal personnel.
