It is a thankless and often perilous job, one that Arnold Garcia performed without the benefit of a gun, baton, chemical spray or personal alarm. For nearly two decades, he worked the graveyard shift at the Dorothy F. Kirby Center in the City of Commerce, supervising the locked cottages that house some of Los Angeles County's most youthful and troubled offenders. Like all of the Probation Department's 3,000 employees, he got by with only two weapons--muscle and guile.

A juvenile hall from which 11 teen-agers escaped was never meant to hold hard-core offenders and may never be adequate for that type of prisoner, its chief probation officer said. The 11, including six youths awaiting hearings on murder or attempted murder charges, let themselves out of their cells Friday night after obtaining a set of keys. Five had turned themselves in or been captured by Sunday, but six remained at large and were considered dangerous, said police Inspector Antonio Casillas.
