Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet announced Oct. 2 the hiring of Kenneth E. Smith as the new director of the Loudoun County Juvenile Court Service Unit.
Smith has been serving in the role as interim director since January following the retirement of former JCSU Director Mark Crowley.
He previously served as the court service unit director for Fauquier and Rappahannock counties, after beginning his career in Prince William County in 1975, where he served as a probation officer, parole officer and probation supervisor.
“Kenny is a well-regarded and respected professional with many years of experience in the field of juvenile justice, including extensive experience in dispute resolution and mediation,” Hemstreet said in a prepared statement.
As the Loudoun JCSU Director, Smith will oversee the screening and processing of requests in the areas of juvenile complaints, custody, support, visitation and protective orders. The unit also provides juvenile probationary services to the court and operates special programs, such as the Restorative Justice Program, that can be used for diverting juvenile offenders from court.
