Juvenile Intake & Assessment

by Cheryl Cadue last modified Jul 11, 2013 03:59 PM

Juvenile intake and assessment programs operate in all 31 judicial districts throughout Kansas providing intake evaluations for alleged juvenile offenders and children in need of care who are taken into custody by law enforcement agencies.

Juvenile intake and assessment operates on a twenty-four hour a day, seven-day week basis to assist law enforcement by allowing them to return to patrol while intake staff assess the youth's needs. This assessment helps determine what community based services may be appropriate for the youth and family as well as to determine if the youth can be returned home or if placement is appropriate pending a subsequent court hearing.
