Topics: Juvenile/Adult Justice System

Description: Alternatives to Detention (ATDs) are programs that increase supervision on a youth rather than placing the youth in a secure facility while awaiting their court hearings (prejudicated youth). Youth in these programs are allowed to remain in the community with the ATD intervention to help prevent them from committing new law violations and make sure that the youth appear in court. ATDs include electronic monitor, tracking services, day and evening reporting centers and shelter care. Electronic monitor (EM) programs use electronic devices, usually worn on the youth’s ankle, that monitors their location and movement centered around their home, allowing them to go to school, jobs, activities, etc. as approved by the personal monitoring their movement.

Topics: Juvenile/Adult Justice System

Description: Day and Evening Reporting Centers are programs held at a specific location that provide intensive supervision for youth during the school hours for youth not in school and/or the afterschool hours. Programs may offer only day reporting, evening reporting, or both day and evening reporting for youth. Reporting centers use structured actives and classes that focus on needs and/or skills such as anger management, job skills, independent living, etc. Reporting centers do not provide treatment services. The goal of the reporting center is that youth will return to court with no new law violations.
