SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP POLICE DEPARTMENT YOUTH DIVERSION PROGRAM

SYLVANIA AREA FAMILY SERVICES OPERATES JUVENILE DIVERSION

The Sylvania Youth Diversion Program is a voluntary program offered to youth between the ages of 11 – 17 (18 if still in high school) who have committed a crime, but meet qualifications and have been referred to the program by the Lucas County Courts.

The Sylvania Youth Diversion Program, in conjunction with the Lucas County Courts, is an opportunity for first time youth offenders to choose an alternative to the juvenile court system. Both the youth and the parent must be interested in participating. Successful completion will result in no juvenile record of conviction.
After referral from the Lucas County Courts youth will be offered an opportunity to attend an intake meeting with the Youth Diversion Director. This meeting must be scheduled and will take approximately one hour.

Basic Rules of the Diversion Program:

  1. Restitution – if restitution is required the amount must be agreed upon at the time of acceptance.
  1. Program cost- the cost of the program is $350.00. There are scholarships available to youths that show a need.
  1. Curfew- there is a curfew with hours varying among junior high and high school students.
  1. Grades- the youth must maintain passing grades of a “C” or higher in all classes.
  1. Class attendance- each youth and parent must attend education classes once a week for 10 weeks, from 6pm-8:30pm.
