Juvenile Bureau

The Juvenile Bureau is a specialized unit within the Detective Bureau that works with those under the age of 17. Michigan law considers anyone under the age of 17 to be considered a juvenile and criminal violations are handled separately from adults. The Juvenile Bureau consists of three officers, each of which has been trained in the procedures and laws pertaining to juveniles and Juvenile Court. Each of the officers is assigned to one of the school systems within the city and handles the incidents involving those students.
