These programs are for families that have tried everything and their child is still in trouble. The child does not have to be on probation. It is a Saturday class for parents and child. The classes are held at the Detention Center by officers and counselors. They give a tour of the facility, work one-on-one with child and parent and provide referral information. This is a confrontational program so the parent must be willing to support that. The program is free and held monthly. Call for dates.
