A juvenile parole officer is someone with a BS whom is assigned to juveniles out of prison and help them get back into normal life. A juvenile probation officer is assigned to the child as an alternative to jail/prison and to keep an eye on the child. The caseworker is in charge or directing and guiding the child when it comes to the actually law stuff.

Probation Officer = Before Jail/Prison

Parole Officer = After incarceration

To be professionally certified, juvenile probation officers must complete an 80-hour basic training course at the Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Academy, followed by 40 hours of on-the-job site-specific training on the basics of juvenile probation officer work, and take a test. In some cases, probation officers have voluntarily attended additional POST training beyond basic training, such as verbal judo and instructor development. Depending on the county, juvenile probation officers may receive initial and ongoing training.The Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections (IDJC) partnered with POST to develop standards and certification. IDJC funds this work. In addition, the Juvenile Training Council was established to develop requirements for juvenile probation officer training. The members (who are appointed by IDJC's Director) are comprised of a county sheriff, a director of a juvenile detention center, the Director of IDJC, a magistrate judge, and a county juvenile probation administrator. Idaho probation officers developed and wrote the academy curriculum, which POST approved.
