“The Clackamas County Juvenile Department is dedicated to community safety. It is our goal to hold youth offenders accountable to facilitate victim and community restoration. We collaborate with community partners to assist in positive youth development and strengthening families.”

“It takes a village to raise a child”.  – African Proverb

When it comes to working with at-risk youth, supporting them in becoming pro-social and contributing members of our community, this philosophy becomes inescapable in today’s environment.  The juvenile department is aware that we are only one cog in the wheel of the successful restoration of youth, victims and community.  We are committed to both supporting communities in becoming more resilient and safe, while also seeking community’s guidance and support in fulfilling our mission.  Clackamas County citizens and their communities are our most powerful partners in shaping a safer future.
