Nothing from September 27, 2021 to November 27, 2021.
The purpose of the Juvenile Review Board is to provide a community based program for diverting eligible juvenile cases from the Juvenile Justice System, and to provide intervention at the local level.
The Juvenile Review Board is comprised 11 members appointed by the Board of Selectman. The Juvenile Review Board consists of Youth Services Commission members, law enforcement, school officials, court personnel and community members.
We urge families confronted with their child’s arrest or a school based referral to the Juvenile Justice System to inquire about the option of the Juvenile Review Board. For further information about this community based service offered to East Granby residents, contact Susan Lawshe, Commission on Youth Services Coordinator at (860) 653-7800.
The Juvenile Review Board shall accept juvenile cases meeting the following criteria:
- A referral from an East Granby Resident State Trooper for a first time misdemeanor offense committed by a person 17 years of age and under who resides in the Town of East Granby;
- A referral from the East Granby School District for truancy and/or overt and repeated defiance of school rules committed by a person 17 years of age and under who resides in the Town of East Granby only after the school district has exhausted all remedies it has available;
The Juvenile Review Board may consider accepting juvenile cases falling outside of the eligibility requirements on a case by case basis and at their discretion.
The Juvenile Review Board shall accept referrals for Families With Service Needs (FWSN) effective July 1, 2020.
