2151.15 Powers and duties vested in county department of probation.

When a county department of probation has been established in the county and the juvenile judge does not establish a probation department within the juvenile court as provided in section 2151.14 of the Revised Code, all powers and duties of the probation department provided for in sections 2151.01 to 2151.54 , inclusive, of the Revised Code, shall vest in and be imposed upon such county department of probation.
