Juvenile Intensive Probation-Redeploy Illinois
The Intensive Probation (IPS) officer's role is to provide comprehensive, daily supervision to high-risk juvenile offenders as an alternative to commitment to the Department of Juvenile Justice. The juvenile is court-ordered in the IPS program for the length of the probation term, or until successfully completing a three-level phase program.
Early Completion & Requirements
If the juvenile completes the program before the end of the probation period, he/she would be egressed to regular probation. In addition to the regular terms of probation, the juvenile must abide by a strict curfew, participate in community service employment and cog intervention therapy, and submit to regular drug and alcohol tests to ensure they are drug free.
Redeploy Illinois is designed to provide services to youth in McLean County between the ages of 13 and 18 who are at high risk of being committed to the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice. A fiscal incentive is provided by the State of Illinois to McLean County to provide services to youth within their home community by building a continuum of care for youth who are in the juvenile justice system. McLean County will link youth to a wide array of needed services and supports within the home community, as indicated through the Youth Assessment Screening Instrument (YASI) and the consensus of an individual WRAP meeting. Services are provided in the least restrictive manner possible, and can include comprehensive intensive supervision by the use of frequent court appearances, electronic monitoring, drug testing, treatment services, and community supervision through the use of case management, family advocacy, education assistance, individual/family/group counseling and crisis intervention
