Truancy Reduction and Compliance (TRAC) - This program assists at risk juveniles between the ages of 8 and 17 years in reducing truancy by addressing targeted problem behaviors through education and counseling specific to the needs of the child. A Delinquency Prevention Specialist is assigned to each case and is responsible for formulating a case plan and follow up for 30-90 days.
Juveniles At Risk (JAR) Mentoring - JAR Deputies visit with juveniles between the ages of 8 and 15-years-old once a week at home or school. The program promotes positive decision making and behavior consequences. Parents are required to attend a JAR orientation meeting prior to the child being enrolled into the program.
L.E.A.D. “Law Enforcement Against Drugs” - This National drug prevention program offers drug tests for parents to test their children anonymously. CCSO provides information and makes referrals to the family about available resources.
Juvenile Civil Citation - The Juvenile Civil Citation Program, authorized by Florida Statute 985.301, is the pre-arrest diversion program that empowers Deputies to issue a civil citation to juveniles for community service hours in lieu of arrest and formal prosecution for misdemeanor offenses. The juveniles receive a timely consequence for their crime and have the opportunity to give back to their community.
If you have any questions contact Civil Citation Coordinator Corporal Sandra Doria - Ph: (239) 252-0076 or Sandra.Doria@colliersheriff.org
