Mission Statement:

The Community Justice Board (CJB) is a Pima County Attorney’s Office diversion program that provides an alternative to traditional prosecution. By using restorative justice practices, CJB Volunteers work with first or second time youth offenders by holding them accountable for the harm they have caused and utilizing strength-based consequences that encourage self-reflection, asset building and goal-setting.

Program History:

The Pima County Attorney's Office is committed to reducing juvenile crime, but we can't do it alone. Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall's vision of partnering with local neighborhoods and training volunteers to become a strong voice in the justice system became a reality when the first Community Justice Board was created in May of 1998.

Now located throughout Pima County, Community Justice Boards (CJBs) operate on the principles of balanced and restorative justice while focusing primarily on juvenile accountability and building competencies for our youth and their families
