Juvenile Citation Program

Clovis police officers are faced with confusion out in the field, whether to arrest or detain juveniles related in crimes on scene.

City commissioners are looking to alleviate that confusion by adding a central area where juveniles can be housed. They approved a grant Thursday evening, that will give them money to create a center for under-age suspects.

The juvenile area will be used to cut back on time for officers who arrest under age suspects or the parents pick that are required to pick them up.
