Program Description

  District Court Screening and Mediation

The District Court Screening program resolves cases before the trial date by contacting victims and witnesses to determine what outcome they would like to obtain from the criminal justice system. This program relies on volunteers and is supervised by permanent staff. It provides victim/witness assistance by delivering information about the criminal justice system to victims and witnesses whose cases are expected to go to trial. The Pre-Trial Mediation program is designed to resolve non-violent disputes between individuals. Trained volunteers and a mediation specialist work to resolve issues and reduce to writing an agreement by which all sides will abide.
