Probation means that the juvenile must follow conditions that are put in place for him/her and their family once they are released. The juvenile will be under the supervision of a probation officer with conditions such as meeting with their probation officer at school or in the community, phone contact on a daily basis, drug testing/counseling, mandatory attendance for school, a weekend curfew, and restitution. The time spent on probation could be for a specific amount of time or it could be open ended (Clear, T. R., Cole, G. F., & Reisig, M. D. 2013). Juvenile diversion looks to evade the arduous consequences of formal processing and occurs at any point in the juvenile justice process; however, it is usually chosen before filing formal charges.
