  • Work closely with teachers and police departments

Our most recent addition to the program involves working with cultural orientation and counseling to African refugees and families from Mexico.  This addition has brought about new challenges as well as prompting counseling to go beyond the traditional walls of an office.

Peer Justice

The Peer Justice Program provides services to youth ages 13 – 17 who have had police contact for a status or misdemeanor offense or an ordinance violation.  This program includes:

  • Individual and family screening and education.
  • A sentencing hearing before a jury of teen peers. The jury determines a sentence that can include community service opportunities, apology letters, restitution, counseling services or educational services.
  • Community service sites that include area business and service agencies.
  • Referral and linkage with agencies that provide appropriate counseling, psychiatric, medical, and concrete services if needed.

 

The Peer Justice program also makes significant use of teenage volunteers who serve as jurors and courtroom personnel.

Cost:  There is a $150.00 processing fee for the Peer Justice services.  If the youth or family has reasonable financial resources, the sentence may include a restitution clause.  There are no other fees for this program.

Referrals:  Only police officers based in the school or community can refer to P.J.
