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.
