|Youth Services Bureau|
The Youth Services Bureau provides, trains, and manages three (3) School Resource Officers (SRO) to public high and middle schools. It is also responsible for the development and management of the Napa Community Youth Services Diversion Program. The primary goal of the Youth Services Bureau is to provide youth and their families an opportunity to work through their problems which may result, or have resulted, in criminal behavior. It works closely with other local governmental and non-profit agencies in providing direct services and referrals to youths and their families.
