Juvenile Probation Officers are required by the Alabama Department of Youth Services to receive a minimum of forty hours of job related training each year in order to be certified. This unit develops, plans, and coordinates training programs so the Juvenile PO's have the opportunity to comply with this state mandate, as well as to continue development of their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Volunteers are one of the most important assets of Family Court. The Volunteer Services component of this unit recruits, screens, trains, and assigns volunteers to support the paid staff at Family Court. Volunteers not only provide a valuable service to the Court, but to the community as well. For more information about Training or Volunteer Services please contact Family Court at 205-325-5619.
