Neaves Davis Center
The Neaves-Davis Center for Children provides Juvenile Probation Services for Madison County. The Madison County Juvenile Probation Department works under the direction of the District Court Juvenile Judges. The overall philosophy of juvenile probation is directed towards promoting accountability and providing rehabilitative assistance for juveniles and the families involved in the juvenile court system. Juvenile probation services include a 24 hour Intake department consisting of probation officers who are authorized to accept and process delinquent complaints, brought forth by law enforcement agencies and victims, pertaining to juveniles. The intake department is responsible for determining whether alleged complaints brought on juveniles are handled through the use of informal means, referral to other agencies or programs, or official court hearings. Intake officers are also responsible for determining whether a juvenile who is taken into custody by a law enforcement agency should be admitted into secure detention pending a 72 hours hearing. In addition, the intake department provides walk-in assistance to parents who are seeking information on treatment programs for their children.
