Blew, Carol Holliday; Rosenblum, Robert
This examines an exemplary project of community arbitration, a juvenile justice alternative. Essential elements of this project are described and include: (1) prompt case processing, (2) court-like setting, (3) involvement of victims, (4) assurance of due process, (5) use of community resources, and (6) constructive dispositions. Facets of CAP (Community Arbitration Project) discussed include development, organization and costs, operations, results, and summary of replication issues. This is a geographically specific project description; however, it could serve as a model or guide for communities nationwide, to be utilized by parents, youth, juvenile justice counselors and community members.
