What is the Juvenile Review Board?
The Juvenile Review Board (JRB) is a community-based program whose objective is to divert youth from the Juvenile Justice System by providing intervention services to prevent further court involvement.
The JRB acts as a preventative program by diverting first time offenders from court to an accessible community resource for appropriate services. Diversions promote responsible behavior and help to solve problems that may be at the root of delinquent behavior. These diversions not only create opportunities for the juvenile offender, but also alleviate overcrowding in the court system.
The JRB works hard to identify patterns of delinquency and other risk factors so it may implement the most appropriate services for each individual case.
