Delinquency services are centralized in Delaware. A single state-level executive agency, the Department of Services for Children, Youth, and Their Families, Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services (DYRS), administers a full range of services to delinquent youth. The Community Services Unit within the DYRS administers probation and aftercare services. The DYRS also administers commitment to public state facilities and operates Delaware's two secure detention facilities.
