This series consists of records created, accumulated and used between 1976 and 1999 by the Saskatchewan Department of Social Services in its operation of the young offenders programs in the province as legislated by the federal Juvenile Delinquents Act (1908-1984) and Young Offenders Act (1984-2002). The series consists of case files for clients participating in the Alternative Measures Program (using non-judicial measures for resolution), Community Options (including probation, judicial interim release program, community service, restitution, etc.) and Custody Options (sentences served at open or secure custody facilities) streams within the system. Records were
maintained by case workers at the Department's various regional offices prior to transfer.
The series has been arranged into three sub-series: Alternative Measures; Community Options; and Custody Options.
Certain files in the Community Options sub-series include records related to open or secure custody sentences.
The types of records in this series include: client information sheets; behaviour assessment reports; anecdotal supervisory reports; correspondence; legal documents (summonses; subpoenas; warrants, consents for undertaking, probation orders, adjudication sheets); memoranda; incident reports; medical reports; psychological and psychiatric assessment reports; visitor lists; and personal effects lists.
