So. Cal. Intercounty Transfer Protocol

Overview

The Southern California Intercounty Transfer Protocol was developed to ensure that a transfer of juvenile jurisdiction is in the best interests of the minor, to provide for the expeditious and efficient transfer of a case in order to reduce any interruption of services to the minor and/or family, and permit the timely conduct of statutorily mandated hearings.  The protocol consists of procedures, rules, and coordination tools that help court staff, probation officers, and social workers to process transfer cases efficiently.

The Superior Court, Probation Department, and Child Welfare Agencies for the counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego have agreed to abide by the protocol.  The adoption of the Southern California Intercounty Transfer Protocol will start as a pilot project for six months, commencing on August 4, 2014.
