Uncontrollable and Runaway Teens
Sometimes, parents are having problems with children being uncontrollable or running away from home. The Juvenile Justice Unit is a referral source for parents experiencing these difficulties.
Parents must exhaust other resources before the unit will become involved.
The Department is not a placing agency for uncontrollable teens and emphasis is placed on parental responsibility for their children.
Additionally, parents need to make every attempt to recover their children that run away.
