Tennessee's delinquency services are organized at both the state and local level. Secure detention in Tennessee is administered locally by executive agencies (i.e., county commission/boards or private contractors) or juvenile courts.  Community supervision in Tennessee is administered by the Department of Children's Services' Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), a state-level executive agency, and local juvenile courts.  DJJ also administers commitments to state public facilities and aftercare services for those youth leaving state facilities.
