The Clackamas County Juvenile Department continues to strive to keep communities safe through restorative practices for youth offenders.

Research has contributed to the use of assessments that identify a youth’s risk to reoffend.  This has allowed the department to develop a continuum of interventions ranging from referral to city diversion panels for low risk youth to intensive supervision practices for high risk youth.  These targeted interventions hold youth accountable, teach youth new skills, while simultaneously working to restore victims and community for the harm done to them.  For the fourth consecutive year the juvenile department has seen a reduction in repeat youth offenders.
