JDAI National Inter-Site Conference - Washington, DC August 2009
Police, Juvenile & Adult Services, and Community Partners Workshop
Law enforcement is a crucial stakeholder in juvenile justice. Multnomah County Department of Community Justice and the Portland Police Bureau recently joined hands to develop and implement alternative responses to youth involved in certain kinds of offenses. New police officers now receive intensified training on the juvenile and adult justice systems, including placement in community services organizations that expose them to the types of complex issues that they face when dealing with juveniles in the field. The resulting collaboration, known as the Community Academy Program, has deepened law enforcement's understanding of, and input into, detention reform and juvenile justice practice. Workshop panel consisted of: Honorable Nan G. Waller, Presiding Family Law Judge, Multnomah County Circuit Court; Tina Edge, JDAI Project Consultant Multnomah Department of Community Justice; Thomas Cleary, Senior Deputy District Attorney Juvenile Division, Multnomah County; Lt. David Virtue, Training Division Portland Police Bureau, and Captain Donna Henderson, Family Services Unit Portland Police Bureau.
