My town is interested is writing an ordinance for a Juvenile Review Board. Would you have any sample ordinances you could share with me?I'm not aware of any town ordinances specifically passed to create a Juvenile Review Board. Most programs seem to be created as a mutual effort between the local youth service bureau and a collaboration of the local law enforcement agency, school system and the court. The only legal basis for a JRB program seems to come from CGS §10-19m that establishes youth service bureaus and lists among their responsibilities to develop programs that are “designed to meet the needs of youths by the diversion of troubled youths from the justice system as well as by the provision of opportunities for all youths to function as responsible members of their communities.”
