The Juvenile Detective Unit investigates all crimes involving juveniles, including status offenses and crimes against children. The unit uses a multi-faceted approach in educating and rehabilitating juvenile offenders.
The Juvenile Detective Unit works closely with the Woonsocket School Department to ensure school safety and provide education to children through school based activities and programs run by the School Resource Officer (SRO).
The Juvenile Detective Unit reviews all incidents to determine if a juvenile offender is an appropriate candidate for the Juvenile Hearing Board. This program is a pre-arrest program available for some first time juvenile offenders.
The Juvenile Detective Unit is prepared to meet any challenge and it is reflected through our high level of commitment and pro-active approach.
