The Juvenile Conference Committees (JCCs) serve under the authority of the Family Division of Superior Court. A JCC is a six to nine member citizen volunteer panel appointed by the Family Division Judge. In a confidential setting, JCC panels hear and decide matters involving alleged juvenile offenders. The juvenile, parent(s) and or guardian(s) and complainant are invited to discuss the offense and related matters with the Committee. The JCC considers the facts, and makes recommendations to the judge for a resolution that would aid in the juvenile's rehabilitation. The program is designed to divert juveniles charged with first or second degree minor offenses to their local JCC, which acts as a community-based arm of the Family Court. Charges that may be heard by the JCC include, but are not limited to: shoplifting, simple assault, attempted theft or theft, criminal mischief, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property and disorderly persons offenses. Program volunteers are required to complete mandatory program-specific training. Volunteers must live in the town in which they serve. High School Students are also sought for this program. We will be placing 1 high school student per town on each committee.
