Douglas County commissioners will consider purchasing two vehicles for the Department of Youth Services.
A memo to commissioners from Pam Weigand, director of youth services, says the Juvenile Justice Authority case management staff needs a vehicle to transport clients in JJA custody to appointments and placements. The surveillance officer for juvenile intensive supervised probation also needs a vehicle for evening surveillance, Weigand said. Probation officers will use the vehicle during the day to transport clients and make field visits.
The department will pay for the cars out of the JJA case management and youth services equipment reserve funds budgets.
