The Bar-O Boys Ranch is a medium to low-security detention center located at 15005 Hwy 199 Gasquet, CA that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes of which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

The juvenile justice system differs from the adult system, focusing on rehabilitation and recognizing the developmental differences in juveniles. It aims to protect both the child and the public and helps juveniles become productive adults.

Juveniles are detained if they pose a threat, may miss court, or violate court orders. Parental involvement is crucial for effective supervision and rehabilitation.

Key differences in terminology include "taken into custody" instead of "arrest" and "supervision" instead of "probation." Referrals usually come from law enforcement, and an intake social worker decides the juvenile's placement. An inquiry can lead to dismissal, corrective action, or court involvement.

The process includes a plea hearing, possible evaluations, a pre-trial conference, a fact-finding hearing, and a dispositional hearing to determine the case's outcome. Parents may need to cover associated costs.

Bar-O-Boys Ranch a branch of the Del-Norte County Probation Department is located in northern California near Crescent City California. We are a forty-two-bed facility that sits nestled amongst the beautiful and scenic Smith River surrounded by US Forest land located in the Six Rivers National Forest.

The Bar-O-Boys Ranch's emphasis is to promote accountability in our boys based on the William Glassers Choice Theory. Much of their focus centers on cause and effects issues and getting the youth to recognize that the very fact that he is at their facility is statement that something went wrong. Their success working with troubled youths is a direct result of their emphasis on family dynamics and other influences using evidence-based practices compounded with a staff with a combined experience of over seventy-five-years.

Minors that are committed to their program are given many opportunities for personal growth and social development. We have a wide range of vocational programs that promote a strong work ethic for the boys providing them with learning new skills that build a since of pride and self-worth in the youth.
