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