Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Member Roster (PDF)

Overview

The New Hanover County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to assess the needs of juveniles in the community, evaluate the performance of juvenile services and programs, and increase public awareness of the causes of delinquency and strategies to reduce the problem.

The strategy of the JCPC is to develop a community-focused, research-based approach to treating the needs of juveniles at risk of delinquency by providing funds for treatment, counseling, or rehabilitation for juveniles and their families.

The JCPC, consisting of 26 members, must reflect the racial and socioeconomic diversity of the community and should include various members of public service administration, the private sector, and community leaders.

Community Programs Currently Funded

The overall purpose of the Community Service and Restitution (CSR) program is to facilitate juveniles completing their court-ordered and/or court-diverted obligations successfully and in a timely manner while teaching, modeling, and encouraging civic, community, and social responsibility to the youth we serve. Under the guidance of federal, state, and local policies/procedures and child labor laws, youth can complete the following examples of tasks to benefit the community while earning community service hours:

  • Constructing and disassembling simple projects
  • Raking, weeding, digging, planting, watering
  • Sanding and painting of walls
  • Sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and disinfecting
