Welcome to Your Chelan County Juvenile Center

The Chelan County Juvenile Center is a county agency responsible for providing juvenile detention, probation, and court services. All criminal cases involving children who are at least eight and not yet 18 years of age are referred to the Juvenile Center to be screened and scheduled for court hearings or diversion. Youth may be brought to detention by law enforcement when arrested for a crime or on a warrant. Each juvenile offender is assigned to a probation counselor who works with the youth and his family to make sure that court orders are followed and to provide treatment and other services designed to reduce recidivism. Juvenile Center staff also assist parents and school officials with truancy and at-risk youth petitions.

Agency Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Chelan County Juvenile Center to promote community safety, hold youth accountable, and provide treatment and rehabilitation toward the goal of reducing recidivism and helping youth reach their potential as worthy and valuable citizens.

Employment

There are 34 full-time employees at the Juvenile Center. In addition, part-time relief workers provide temporary staffing in detention. Classification descriptions for juvenile probation counselor, juvenile custody officer, and administrative support positions are available at the main office. When positions are open, information on how to apply is available in the Wenatchee World.
