WHO WE ARE

The San Francisco Juvenile Probation Department (JPD) provides services to youth who are alleged or have been found to have committed law violations under the jurisdiction of the San Francisco Juvenile Court and manages Juvenile Hall, the official reception and detention center for youth who are detained as a result of an arrest for alleged criminal misconduct or a court order in San Francisco.

The mission of the Juvenile Probation Department is to serve the needs of youth and families who are brought to our attention with care and compassion; to identify and respond to the individual risks and needs presented by each youth; to engage fiscally sound and culturally competent strategies that promote the best interests of the youth; to provide victims with opportunities for restoration; to identify and utilize the least restrictive interventions and placements that do not compromise public safety; to hold youth accountable for their actions while providing them with opportunities and assisting them to develop new skills and competencies; and contribute to the overall quality of life for the citizens of San Francisco within the sound framework of public safety as outlined in the Welfare & Institutions Code.

San Francisco is engaged in unprecedented efforts to re-imagine our approach to youth justice, with racial equity at the center of these efforts. City leadership has committed to broad system change, including the closure of the current Juvenile Hall, through collaborative processes that center the voice of youth, families, and community institutions. JPD is committed to this process, and to a transformed approach to juvenile justice that can improve the lives of BIPOC youths, families, and communities, by achieving the following organizational equity centered goals:


  • Reimagine how the City addresses juvenile crime, from referral through reentry, in collaboration with the community and our system partners, emphasizing research and evidence-based practices, and sustainably addressing pervasive racial disparities throughout the system.
  • Advance a Whole Family Engagement strategy that places racial equity at its center to ensure that all youth have equal access to successful outcomes, and that advances youth-and family-centered case plans and goal development, with the supports and resources necessary to help justice-involved youth thrive.
  • Bolster equitable leadership development opportunities for Black, Latinx and Asian/Pacific Islander staff throughout the Department, and pursue just transitions for staff whose positions may end with the closure of Juvenile Hall.

Conviction History

As a selected candidate for a job, you will be fingerprinted, and your fingerprints will be sent to the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The resulting report of your conviction history (if any) will be used to determine whether the nature of your conviction (or arrest, in limited circumstances) conflicts with the specific duties and responsibilities of the job for which you are a selected candidate. If a conflict exists, you will be asked to present any evidence of rehabilitation that may mitigate the conflict, except when federal or state regulations bar employment in specific circumstances, such as:

  • Candidates for positions with the Unified School District and the Community College District may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under the California Education Code.
  • Candidates for positions with the Recreation and Park Department may be disqualified from consideration should their conviction history not meet the standards established under California Public Resources Code 5164.

Having a conviction history does not automatically preclude you from a job with the City.
