"The mission of the Darien Police Department's Youth Division is to prevent juvenile delinquency through positive interactions with community youth. This is accomplished by instituting various programs which focus on education, safety and enforcement which may include the referral of at-risk youth to an appropriate agency or organization. "

The Darien Police Department recognizes the value to society and importance of early intervention of juvenile offenders. The Youth Division has designated detectives to properly and thoroughly carry out a three-pronged approach to this end. Education, prevention, and diversion are the first steps before litigious court action is taken with youthful offenders, and it is through the support of the community and the collaboration with the various social service agencies that this approach has been successful and widely accepted. The Youth Division also handles crimes against or involving juveniles. The Detectives assigned to this unit receive extra training in the areas of youth crime and neglect. The Detectives work closely with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) the Darien School System and other State and local agencies.
