Youth Court Call
The Village has a Youth Outreach Program that is an interdisciplinary program involving the Village’s Human Services Division, the youth outreach worker in the police department, and the Village’s legal department. This program provides a constructive alternative for youthful offenders who receive tickets for Village ordinance violations who may be assigned community service, anger management classes, education programs, or, when indicated, family counseling instead of receiving traditional citations with fines. The objective of the program is to provide guidance and direction to young people. This highly successful program was established in 1998 and helps many young people each year.
