Iowa's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. Community supervision is administered under the state level judiciary branch, across eight districts. All clerks of court and juvenile court services personnel, including probation, are Supreme Court employees. Each district has a Chief Juvenile Court Officer. The Iowa Department of Human Services, a state executive agency, administers commitments to state public facilities. Parole services are administered to youth leaving state facilities by Juvenile Court Officers, who are employees of the State Supreme Court. Secure detention is administered locally by either county executive agencies or by multi-county regional commissions.
