The Intake/Diversion Unit of the Mohave County Probation Department is tasked with the responsibility of reviewing all juvenile complaints submitted by law enforcement. A.R.S. 8-321 provides the statutory authority and requirements for determining which juveniles can be diverted and the conditions that must be met. The Intake Unit works closely with the Mohave County Attorney’s Office to identify low level and low risk offenders for participation in the Diversion Program. Diversion serves as a means to redirect many first time offenders from the juvenile court process, while remaining focused on community protection and still holding the juvenile accountable for their actions. Probation Officers in the Intake Unit work diligently with the families to assess the juvenile’s risk to the community and assign educational consequences. Juveniles may also be referred to local treatment options when appropriate. Programs offered through the probation department include Teen Law School, Teen Court, on-line drug and alcohol classes, shoplifting classes and work books that require family participation.

For juveniles not diverted from the juvenile justice system, Intake Officers are required to write a report to aid the Court in deciding the disposition of a case. Juveniles can be placed on Standard Probation, Juvenile Intensive Probation (JIPS) or be committed to the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections. In Calendar year 2012, our officers processed 1,393 referrals. Of those, the County Attorney’s Office filed 292 petitions alleging delinquency.

Deputy Probation Officer Senior, Tara Newman, manages the Intake/Diversion Unit. There is an Intake Officer in each office located in Kingman, Lake Havasu City, Bullhead City and the Arizona Strip.
