TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Tallahassee Police Department's Juvenile Services Unit joined WTXL on Wednesday to speak about their goals for the Tallahassee community.

The Juvenile Services Unit (JSU) is staffed by uniformed officers, criminal investigators and case managers. The primary goals of the Juvenile Services Unit are to reduce juvenile related crime through the use of subject focused intervention, investigations, and the gathering of intel related to organized criminal activities.

Juvenile offenders are encouraged to engage in intervention programs, complete probation successfully, and to remain crime free. To accomplish these goals, the JSU utilizes the following programs:

• At-Risk Assistance Program (A-ARAP)

• Juvenile Habitual Offender (JHO) Program

• Responding Against Delinquency and Recidivism (RADAR) Program

• Juvenile Civil Citation (JCC) Program
