  • Assists and monitors individuals who have been found guilty of a charge and have been ordered by the Court to perform community service or to compensate any person in kind.
Extra-Judicial Programming (EJM and EJS)
 

Extrajudicial Sanctions (EJS) is a program that gives young people (ages 12-17) and opportunity to accept responsibility for their actions and to make amends by completing certain tasks after being charged with an offence. This is an option available to the courts instead of proceeding in a formal manner through the court system. The Crown Attorney must agree to the youth enrolling and participating in the program. An individualized assessment on the youth referred is completed (including feedback from Parents/Guardians) that looks at the youth’s home, school and/or work, interpersonal and health realms of their life and then contract with the young person to provide them with sanctions (tasks) and time frames to complete these as a means of holding them accountable for their actions while helping them recognize the impact of their behaviour on the person(s) harmed and their community. The youth’s strengths and needs are targeted to create an individual program with the intention of benefits to both the youth and their community.

Extrajudicial Measures (EJM) is a program that gives young people (ages 12-17), who are willing to participate, an opportunity to accept responsibility for their actions and to make amends by completing certain tasks.  This is an option available to the police instead of laying a formal charge. Involvement with ADAPT may be one of the tasks assigned as part of the EJM contract and usually consists of 5 to 6 appointments.  Involvement is immediate, time limited and ADAPT communicates with the Halton Region Police about the youth’s attendance and success. Participants are expected to call and set up their initial assessment appointment.
