WELCOME TO THE PEORIA PEACEKEEPERS

ALL ABOUT PEORIA PEACEKEEPERS

Peoria PeaceKeepers is a referral source program. Peoria PeaceKeepers will have three referral sources: Peoria Police Department Station Adjustments, Peoria Public Schools discipline referrals, and Peoria County Probation Informal Supervision. These three programs will serve to allow youth an opportunity to make restitution, connect with the community, and receive needed services and support.

The program will include the juvenile offender, family/support, the victim, at least two community members, the police officers/school staff, and any peers. Through the course of a one hour-long discussion, the individuals will apply principles of procedural justice to discuss the situation, the impact and perspective of both parties, which will determine an appropriate remedy.

The youth will be given an action plan and a prescribed window of time to complete the assignment.
