Minnesota's delinquency services are organized at the both the state and local level. Community supervision in Minnesota is administered in one of three ways: 1) Community Corrections Act (CCA) (17 jurisdictions, representing 32 counties), 2) County Probation Officers (CPO) (28 counties), and 3) Minnesota Department of Corrections (MDOC) (55 counties). The MDOC also administers commitments to state public facilities as well as aftercare services for youth leaving those facilities. Secure detention is administered in a variety ways: at the local level by a county commission/ board, county executive/ manager, sheriff or police chief, or private contractor. Detention is also administered in some areas at the state level by MDOC.
