Baxter County Juvenile Services
Baxter County Juvenile Services successfully operates various youth and family oriented programs under the direction of the Baxter County Government and the 14th Judicial District Circuit Court, Juvenile Division. Circuit Judge Deanna "Suzie" Layton presides over the 14th Judicial District Circuit Court, Juvenile Division. The Juvenile intake and probation officers work with both delinquency and family in need of services cases for the county. The officers seek to utilize a balanced approach to address the needs of the youth, yet provide an opportunity for the juvenile to be held accountable for his/her behavior, and at the same time protect society.
