Juvenile Pre-Trial Supervision is a program of intensive home supervision of adolescents who would otherwise be held in secure detention. The goals of the program are to ensure that the juvenile is available for Court and to prevent further delinquency pending final Court action. Depending upon the juvenile's needs and problems, a variety of services are offered including family counseling, crisis counseling, information and referral, transportation and recreation. For information on the Juvenile Pretrial Supervision Program, call 703-792-7500.
