Peoria County BARJ Work Area Transition Report
Published Sep 30, 2010, Jeff Gress
Each of the Illinois Demonstration Sites for Community Based Alternatives have developed transition reports for each of their written work-plan supported areas. The Peoria County Balanced and Restorative Justice Work Area Transition report chronicles their experience attempting to improve the local infrastructure for safely diverting school discipline issues from a law enforcement response and changing school climate. The document includes an opening overview by the National Center for Juvenile Justice, a detailed program narrative written by the principle MFC coordinators for this work area in Peoria County and a compilation of the tools and products developed in the work. The document is 68 pages in length.
