Juvenile Review Board of Haddam-Killingworth

Youth & Family Services of Haddam-Killingworth, Inc. offers a program called the Juvenile Review Board of Haddam-Killingworth (JRB).  The JRB is an alternative to the Juvenile Justice System.  The main objective of the JRB is to provide an alternative for juveniles (age 16 and under) who are in conflict at home, in school, in the community, or are first-time offenders of the law.  As an alternative to going to Juvenile Court, the juvenile’s case will be heard by the JRB.  In a case where the juvenile has broken the law, the board will require the juvenile to accept consequences such as community service, restitution, etc.  The Board may also make recommendations in an attempt to resolve any conflict that the juvenile has been experiencing.  The diversion process is entirely voluntary and the juvenile must admit to the behavior for which they have been referred.  The referral source (i.e., school, law enforcement, parent or guardian) may refer cases (with the permission of the parent or guardian) to the JRB by calling 860-345-7498.  The Board is a group of volunteers committed to helping families within the Haddam and Killingworth community.  Each board member is bound confidentiality and is required to sign a confidentiality agreement.  It includes individuals from local schools, churches, social service agencies, law enforcement, businesses, and juvenile probation. For more information call:  Youth & Family Services of  Haddam –Killingworth Inc. 860-345-7498.
