Notice to Clients:

The Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD) investigates complaints against county Juvenile Boards relating to the provision of juvenile services in every Texas County. TJJD, however, requires that the Juvenile Board be given the opportunity to resolve all complaints first at the local county level.

Should you have a concern or complaint regarding the provision of Juvenile Probation, Detention or Correctional Services, please contact the Victoria County Chief Juvenile Probation Officer:

  • Victoria County Juvenile Services Department
  • 97 Foster Field Dr.
