Supervision Policy

Teen Court participants must make prior arrangements to be picked up on completion of each Teen Court docket no later than 7:45 p.m. Adult supervision will not be available beyond 7:45 p.m. The designated pick up point for all participants is on the North side of the building adjacent to the Recreation Center’s front doors. Teen Court participants have the ability upon their request to use a Court telephone to call parent / guardian for pick up at least 15 minutes prior to their release.

It is mandatory for a Teen Court participant under 17 years of age who is set on the Court Docket to have a parent / guardian with them throughout their Court session. Since the Courtroom is not designed to hold a lot of people, we ask that only one parent or guardian attend with each participant. Additionally, children under 10 years of age are not allowed in the Courtroom. Defendants will not need a parent or guardian to serve their jury term(s), however they will need to make arrangements for someone to pick them up upon their release but it must be no later than 7:45 p.m.
