Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's delinquency services are organized at the both the state and local level. Community supervision in Pennsylvania is administered by local county juvenile courts. The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, a state social services agency, administers commitments to state public facilities, while aftercare services, for youth leaving those facilities, are administered locally by county juvenile courts. Secure detention in Pennsylvania is administered at the county level either through a variety of local executive agencies or local judicial (juvenile courts) agencies.
