The juvenile justice process in Maryland begins when a youth is brought to one of DJS's intake offices across Maryland either because he or she was arrested by the police or is the subject of a citizen complaint.
The Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) is involved in each stage of the Juvenile Justice process in Maryland. However, DJS is not alone in the process. DJS collaborates with law enforcement, courts, attorneys, other state agencies, and service providers at various stages.
