Mission Statement

The Denton County Juvenile Probation Department is committed to the protection of the community, juvenile accountability, and helping juveniles achieve goals for good citizenship. Our recommendations and supervision of juveniles take into consideration the unique situation of each child, the child's family, and the developmental needs of children in general. Furthermore we pursue each case with adherence to Texas law, the orders of the court, and consider the least restrictive avenues of intervention, as we guide, supervise and educate those with whom we interact.
