The Juvenile Diversion Alternative Program provides diversion services to youth involved in the criminal justice system. Admission is based on referral by the Department of Juvenile Justice, approved by State Attorney’s office and the Circuit Judge, for low-risk youthful offenders eligible to be served in a community based setting. The goals of the program are to maintain public safety, minimize risk of participants from becoming repeat offenders, and reducing the need for secure juvenile detention facilities.
JDAP strives to influence youth to remain crime free by
• Scheduling, supervision and monitoring of compliance with required sanctions including community service, curfew and restitution
• Conducting randomized drug testing for youth who are at risk or have a history of substance abuse
• Referral to individual, group and/or family counseling
• Providing educational and vocational services to age appropriate youth
