This division was formed in 1998. The purpose of the
Juvenile Field Services (JFS) Division is to provide supervision and/or
case management for adjudicated juvenile offenders in Sedgwick County.
Juvenile offenders served by this division include: those at risk of
entering state's custody, those placed on intensive supervision
probation, those in the custody of the state, those directly committed
to a state juvenile correctional facility (JCF), and those on
conditional release (CR) from a state JCF. Funding for these programs is
provided by contractual agreements with the State of Kansas Juvenile
Justice Authority (JJA).
JFS places emphasis on public safety, preventing future
offenses through the use of evidence-based correctional practices and
services, education, employment and enhancing positive family impact on
the offender's behavior. Offenders are supervised on level systems based
on their level of risk to reoffend as determined by evidence-based
correctional risk assessments. Urinalysis and breath analysis tests
detect drug use. Contacts with employers, educators, treatment
providers, caregivers and the offender are characteristic of these
programs. In some cases, electronic monitoring is used to restrict
freedom and provide sanctions for minor violations of the conditions of
supervision. This restricts the offender's mobility to the home or other
approved locations. If the offender violates the rules, staff are
quickly notified and can take action.

offenders at risk of entering state's custody and placed on intensive
supervision probation by the Court.
