Community Safety through Positive Change

Our mission is to enhance community safety and reduce criminal activity by holding youth accountable in a fair and just manner, assisting them to develop skills necessary for success, and effectively using public resources.

We are invested in continuing to develop, implement, and provide efficient and effective services that are customer focused, culturally competent, attentive to victim’s needs, and based on best practices to reduce recidivism, increase high school completion, enhance youth accountability, and improve outcomes.
