Exclusive First Look: Neighborhood Court

AggieTV

Published on Apr 16, 2013
In an exclusive interview, AggieTV and the California Aggie give you a first look at Davis' Neighborhood Court. This brand new Restorative Justice Program was initiated by the Yolo County District Attorney's office in cooperation with the UC Davis Police Department to address nonviolent and low level crimes through community-based solutions to swiftly redress the harm caused by these offenses outside of the traditional criminal justice system. The purpose of this program is to address criminal violations that impact the quality of life at UC Davis. They hope to implement the program by this coming Picnic Day.
As a Restorative Justice Program, Neighborhood Court strengthens neighborhoods impacted by criminal activity in four ways:
- Restore Victim
- Restore Community
- Restore Offender
- Educate Offender
