Rule 223. Probation
(a) Imposition of Probation. The court may place a juvenile on probation at the time of disposition. The court must impose conditions of probation designed to promote the juvenile's positive development, assure accountability, and protect the public. In addition, the probation officer may impose directives that are consistent with and necessary for implementing the conditions imposed by the court.
(b) Notice. All conditions imposed by the court and directives imposed by a probation officer must be given to the juvenile in writing, unless exigent circumstances require the probation officer to give oral notice directly to the juvenile. When oral notice is given, the juvenile must also be provided with prompt written notice that confirms the oral notice.
(c) Modification of Probation.
(1) A probation officer may modify or clarify any directive that the probation officer has imposed.
(2) After notice to the prosecutor and the juvenile, and after the parties have had an opportunity to be heard, the court may modify any condition it has imposed or any directive imposed by a probation officer.
(3) The juvenile, probation officer, or the State may ask the court to modify or clarify any condition or directive, and the court may hold a hearing if requested. The court must give the juvenile a written copy of a modification or clarification.
(4) Upon a victim's request, the court must notify the victim of any proposed modification of the terms of probation if the modification will substantially affect the juvenile's contact with, or the safety of, the victim, or if the modification affects restitution or incarceration of the juvenile. The court must afford the victim an opportunity to be heard, as provided by law.
(d) Termination of Probation.
(1) The court may terminate the juvenile's probation at any time, but no later than the following:
(A) one year after the disposition, except as provided by A.R.S. § 8-341(B);
(B) the juvenile's eighteenth birthday; or
(C) for cases filed pursuant to A.R.S. § 8-202(H), the juvenile's nineteenth birthday.
(2) If the victim requests notice, the court must notify the victim of any proceeding in which the court is asked to terminate the juvenile's probation. The court must afford the victim an opportunity to be heard, as provided by A.R.S. §§ 8-381 through 8-422.
