Youth Aid Panel
The Youth Aid Panel offers participating police departments another alternative for dealing with first-time/minor juvenile offenses. The Y.A.P. empowers a community to participate in problem solving in its neighborhood. Youth Aid Panels are not a part of the juvenile justice system, but consist of trained volunteer community members. *The Y.A.P. meets one evening a month. **The Police Department is currently seeking volunteers to serve on the Y.A.P. Interested individuals may contact the Police Department during normal business hours.
Goals of the Youth Aid Panel:
1. To prevent the youth from becoming more deeply involved in delinquent behaviors, the juvenile justice system and possible costly detentions.
2. To attempt to understand the “cause” of the offense and to help his/her family resolve the problem.
3. To provides a means of an amicable resolution for the victim.
4. To provide a means to increase the accountability and responsibility of youths for their actions.
5. To hold the juvenile responsible to both the victim and community through completion of panel imposed obligations.
