Title: Juvenile Justice Programs in Prosecutor Offices: An Overview of Four Sites Final Report
Author(s): A Taylor
Date Published: 1995
Page Count: 120
  Annotation: Policies and initiatives that prosecutors have developed to address juvenile delinquency were studied by means of an analysis of juvenile justice programs in prosecutors' offices in Colorado Springs, Colo., Dakota County (Minn.), Cook County (Ill.), and Bristol District, Mass.
Abstract: The Colorado Springs Juvenile Diversion Program has seven full-time employees. The diversion counselor, the youth, and the parents develop a contract that typically lasts a year and requires restitution, community service, academic performance, and other components. Dakota County uses a multifaceted approach coordinated by the Dakota Alliance for Prevention, a partnership of involved adults and youth representing the systems and communities of the county. Cook County has established a motor vehicle theft prevention program for first offenders, a first-offender drug and alcohol diversion program, a retail theft diversion program, and police and community diversion programs. The Bristol district attorney established a nonprofit organization, the Bristol Alliance, to provide area educators with effective training and support programs in alcohol and other drug abuse education, coordinate mock trials for students in fifth through ninth grades, a student attendance program, and a juvenile offender diversion program.
