The Monroe County Youth Court handles delinquent acts committed by children ages 10-17.

MDHS/Division of Youth Services (Monroe County Youth Court) was established to rehabilitate children who have committed a delinquent act. We can assist the family with obtaining professional counseling with a behavioral health center so children can make better decisions that will affect their future.

The options for children who have committed a delinquent act are: informal probation (3-6 months), formal probation (6 months to 1 year), detention, electronic monitoring supervision services (ankle bracelets for ages 13-17) or commitment to Oakley Youth Development Center in Raymond, Mississippi.

Our vision is guided by the fact that our decisions and actions affecting children today will determine the quality of their lives tomorrow.
