Welcome to the Juvenile Services

The Miami-Dade County Juvenile Services Department (JSD) is committed to the youth and families of Miami-Dade County

JSD allows representatives from law enforcement and social services to work together under one roof to provide a complete range of services for both at-risk youth and youth involved with the Juvenile Justice System.

Formerly known as the Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC), the facility has served as a centralized processing, referral, and evaluation center for over 150,000 juvenile arrests in Miami-Dade County, and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Prevention Services

The Miami-Dade County Prevention Initiative is designed for any youth 17 years of age and under who may be experiencing behavior and family difficulties, as well as those at risk of being arrested.

Data and Records

The Data & Records Unit specializes in maintaining records for all juvenile arrests in Miami-Dade County and are retained according to State and Federal guidelines.  The Department’s Quest data/case management system has the capability of analyzing data and generating reports on numerous person and case variables.
