The Juvenile Crime Prevention Office is made possible by the collaborative efforts of our community and the diligent support of Sheriff H. D. “Gator” DeLoach, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, and the Putnam County School District.

Our Mission

The JCPO is committed to meeting the individual needs of the youth of Putnam County by teaching prevention methods and refusal techniques needed to become strong, healthy, and confident individuals. We fully support the family structure by providing parents and youth with strong defenses against environmental risks for personal growth and enhanced bonding.
