Mission Statement


To reduce and prevent juvenile crime;
Promote and maintain safe communities;
To seek victim restoration;
And, improve the welfare of youth and families who are served by the Court.

 The principle beliefs supporting this Mission are:

  • That the disposition of juvenile offenders always takes into account the best interest of public safety.
  • That juvenile offenders be held accountable for the harm they cause to individuals as well as the community.
  • That the primary objective of treatment is to improve and develop the juvenile offenders’ competency skills.
  • That community, residents, and organizations be actively engaged by the Court in a cooperative effort to seek solutions to juvenile crime.
  • That victims are an integral part of the justice system and should have their rights protected during all phases of the court proceedings including the right to be heard, notified, and restored.
