Service: Extra Judicial Measures Program
|Record #: VTC0536||Last Modified: 20 Jul 2017||Last Full Update: 03 Mar 2017|
|Description (Service)||An Extrajudicial Measure is a non-court response to youth crime for less serious offences. The Extrajudicial Measures Program partners with the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service and Ontario Provincial Police, to assist youth through a pre-charge diversion program while holding them accountable for their actions.
The youth are referred by the police to the John Howard Society’s Youth Intervention Centre. A youth facilitator works with the young person to help him/her take responsibility for the offence, understand its impact and help repair harm.
Individual sessions are voluntary and offered as five 1-hour psycho-educational sessions in the following areas:
• Anger and Aggression Awareness, Substance Involvement, Property Crime Prevention, Healthy Relationships
|Hours||Mon-Fri 8:30 am-4:30 pm
Program hours vary - please call for details
|Areas Served||Kawartha Lakes|
|Eligibility||Ages: 12 year(s) - 17 year(s)
Partnering with the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service we assist youth through a precharge diversion program while holding them accountable for their actions. Once the youth admits involvement and agrees to participate in the program we provide them with measures (tasks) to complete as meaningful consequences for their actions and preventing formal involvement with the Youth Justice System. This is a referral based program.
