The Mille Lacs County Attorney’s Office serves as legal advisor and counsel to Mille Lacs County Community and Veterans Services (MLCCVS). The County Attorney’s Office may initiate juvenile protection proceedings to protect abused or neglected children within Mille Lacs County.
The primary mission of the juvenile division is to protect public safety and promote justice. The juvenile justice system works to treat and rehabilitate juvenile offenders, which is different from the goals of the adult justice system.
Truancy and Educational Neglect are two different types of juvenile protection proceedings initiated by Mille Lacs County Community and Veteran’s Services and the Mille Lacs County Attorney’s Office.
