Hawaii's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. Community supervision and secure detention are both administered by the Family Courts. Community supervision is administered across each of the four circuits of Family Courts; while there is only one secure detention facility in Hawaii, administered by the First Circuit Family Court. The Hawaii Office of Youth Services, a state executive social or human services agency, administers commitment to state public facilities. Aftercare services are administered in one of two ways: the Hawaii Office of Youth Services provides parole services for minority commitments, while local Family Courts provide these services for youth under a short-term commitment to the Hawaii Office of Youth Services.
