Grayson County Juvenile Services
Chief Juvenile Probation Officer
Denison TX
I am the Chief Juvenile Probation Officer for Grayson County.  I have worked in Juvenile Justice for 30+ years.  We deal with young people from the age of 10-18.  Each age brings it's own challenges.  Many of our referrals have mental health issues stemming from trauma.  Life long trauma.  In Grayson County, we have a probation department that supervises youth where they are.  That might be at home, school, work, etc.  We have a detention center that we refer to as a pre-adjudication facility.  This means a facility designed to hold youth before they go to court (pre) who have been charged for an offense but on a short term basis.   Grayson County also runs a post-adjudication facility which is a treatment facility for young men.  These young men come from all over Texas.  The post program is court ordered by the county they come from and the length of time they are here ranges from 6 months to a year.  The length of time depends on their program and progress.  We strive to provide quality services throughout all of our programs.
