In Nebraska, juvenile detention and delinquency services are mostly organized at the state level. The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, a state-level executive corrections agency, administers commitment to state facilities. Aftercare services are administered by the state-level Department of Health and Human Services.  Detention is primarily administered by local executive entities such as county commissions or boards; some facilities are operated by private or non-profit organizations. The Office of Probation Administration, within the State Court Administrator's Office, administers probation services through probation districts.
