intake offices

The FCSSD’s Intake Services Offices are located at the Youth Services Center on 1000 Mount Olivet Road, NE, and the Moultrie Courthouse at 500 Indiana Avenue, NW. Staff at these offices receive complaints from the police, screen cases, communicate with the Office of the DC Attorney General and the defense attorney representing the juvenile, and make representations to the judge in Court.

If the DC Attorney General decides to file a case with the court, it will be assigned to a judge who will hear the case. Within three days, the case will be assigned to a FCSSD Satellite Office where an assigned Probation Officer will be responsible for supervising the child.
