Arrow Juvenile Supervision/Special Programs

Juvenile Supervision / Special Programs

C.A.R.T. (Community Alliance Reducing Truancy): The CART program is a collaborative partnership of the El Dorado County Probation Department and high school districts on the western slope of El Dorado County that began in April of 2001. The program involves stationing juvenile probation officers at various high school campuses. These probation officers provide intensive supervision and monitoring of juvenile probationers at their assigned schools. The officers maintain a high profile of presence on the school campus to help create a safe school environment by deterring problem behaviors, delinquent activity and violence. The officers work collaboratively with school personnel, law enforcement and community agencies to provide prevention, intervention and outreach assistance to"at-risk" students and the entire student body and their families.
Teen Court:Teen Court is a diversion program of the Juvenile Court involving cases where juveniles have admitted to delinquent offenses and elected to receive a disposition from a jury of their peers. Teenage students are recruited from local high schools to serve as jurors, attorneys, bailiffs and court clerks. Attorneys from the community volunteer as mentors to assist student attorneys during Teen Court proceedings. A judge presides over the hearings. A trial is conducted and disposition recommendations are created by the teen jury. Dispositions include supportive measures and sanctions appropriate for the juvenile offender. The parents of the juvenile offender are also provided services when appropriate.
Juvenile Drug Court Program: The Juvenile Drug Court is a court based, multi-disciplinary team approach with a strong judicial leadership role for the processing and treatment of drug offenders. This specialized program addresses the needs of non-violent juveniles for whom the primary basis of delinquent behavior is drug/alcohol abuse with the goal of returning them to a drug-free life. Drug Court officials set aside their traditional adversarial roles during the Drug Court process in order to work as a treatment team. With the Judge acting as the treatment team leader, probation officers, prosecutors, defense attorneys and treatment professionals work collaboratively to develop a strategy that is in the best interest of the juvenile and society.
TREC (Transitional Reporting Educational Center): The TREC programs are located on both the West (TREC II) and East (TREC I) slopes of El Dorado County. The TREC programs are collaborative partnerships of the El Dorado County Probation Department and the El Dorado County Office of Education to provide educational services and intensive supervision to identified wards of the Juvenile Court. The TREC programs address academic and school behavior/attendance problems to assist youth in transitioning back to a comprehensive school setting and becoming positive members of society.
Home Supervision/Electronic Arrest Program:This program is designed to allow minors who would otherwise be detained in Juvenile Hall to return home under supervision provided by the Probation Department. Conditions of detention in the home are provided in writing to the participant and the minor shall agree to and follow each condition. The majority of minors in the program are monitored by electronic surveillance equipment serving as a bridge between home supervision and secure detention. Participants who violate the conditions of the program are returned to Juvenile Hall and to the Juvenile Court for further disposition. The successful utilization of this program has assisted with decreasing overpopulation of Juvenile
