Strengthening Collaborative Partnerships

This spring, CCEJ’s Restorative Practices in Communities (RPIC) team is building off an amazing win in November 2017, when the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved community-created recommendations to create a countywide juvenile diversion initiative.

RPIC staff have been strengthening collaborative partnerships with juvenile justice system stakeholders throughout LA County to prepare to expand the reach of our restorative youth diversion programming. As part of this ramp up, RPIC is proud to announce a new partnership with Signal Hill Police Department to begin referring youth for diversion. RPIC is also expanding its work within the LA County District Attorney’s Juvenile Division from one referring office to now receive referrals across all eight offices countywide.

These exciting expansion efforts support the LA County Youth Diversion & Development (YDD) division’s work to begin building capacity and preparing for implementation of the new youth diversion model that will connect youth with community-based services that support their development in lieu of arrest or citation.

YDD officially kicked off this effort on March 1st at the Youth Diversion & Development Summit, where more than 350 attendees gathered together to develop a shared understanding of goals of the YDD model and begin building collaborative partnerships. Attendees at the summit included leadership from law enforcement agencies, community-based providers, county agencies, community advocates, researchers, and artists interested in youth diversion and development work.

As a longstanding leader in youth diversion programming in LA County, CCEJ’s team was featured on two panels to share about best practices and lessons learned with other stakeholders as they prepare for implementation. Executive Director Kimmy Maniquis presented on the topic “Centering Youth & Families in Diversion Plans” and RPIC Case Manager Jamelle Fortuné Turner presented on “Making Eligibility Decisions Easy.”

As YDD focuses on building the infrastructure needed to ensure that youth in Los Angeles County can connect with a continuum of services that address their needs, CCEJ is committed to supporting these efforts to reduce youth arrests and equitably improve outcomes for youth and communities.
