Abstract: THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO REORGANIZE THE STRUCTURE OF THE FAMILY COURT PROBATION STAFF INTO A MORE FLEXIBLE MODEL AND TO MAKE THE ORGANIZATION AMENABLE TO THE OTHER TWO GOALS OF THE PROJECT: THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ALLIED SERVICES SYSTEM AND THE INVESTIGATION OF THE IMPACT OF A MAXIMUM DIVERSION MODEL ON THE JUVENILE AND ON THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM.

THIS REPORT DESCRIBES THE PROPOSED REORGANIZATION, THE PROGRAM STAFF TRAINING, THE SERVICES WHICH THE PROJECT WILL UTILIZE, THE IMPACT MEASURES WHICH ARE TO BE USED, THE IMPLEMENTATION STAGES, AND THE EVALUATION PROCEDURES.
