What is PINS ?
A PINS (Person in Need of Supervision) is a child under the age of 18 who is missing a certain number of school days and/or is uncontrollable at home or in school. Services are available to divert a youth from placement in foster care or non-secure detention. Parents, guardians, schools or agencies involved with the youth may contact Youth Services at the number above for more information or to make a referral.

Crisis Response
Crisis response and intervention services may be obtained during normal business hours.
If a youth has committed a crime, is in immediate danger, has run away or is a danger to themselves or others please call 911.
