Abstract In this bulletin, the authors provide a theoretical overview upon which to base policies, procedures, and practices that will help professionalsand their corresponding agencieseffectively supervise underage drinkers in the community. They also discuss the legal issues that professionals may encounter when working with these youth. Some of the authors recommendations include the following: An effective community supervision program should emphasize four goals: community protection, youth accountability, competency development, and individual assessment. Conditions of community supervision must be clearly stated to the youth, must be constitutional and fair, and must help rehabilitate the youth. Community corrections and diversion professionals must acknowledge the diverse cultural backgrounds of youth and tailor interventions and services accordingly. Justice system professionals must remember that youth under supervision maintain certain basic constitutional rights. Violation of these rights, intentional misconduct, or negligence can result in legal liability.
