What is a Juvenile Citation Hearing?

A Juvenile Citation Hearing is a formal probation meeting held by the Placer County Probation Department. Individuals present at the meeting may include a probation officer, a social worker intern, parents of the juvenile and the juvenile who was cited. If the juvenile does not contest the citation, and with parents consent, they may be assigned to Informal Probation or Peer Court depending on the status of offense.
