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 200,000 juvenile arrests in Miami-Dade County, and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Miami-Dade County recognized for its juvenile Civil Citation program

According to an annual study conducted by Caruthers Institute, Miami-Dade County received top grade for its success with the juvenile Civil Citation program in 2017.
