Byrne JAG funds support Yolo County in implementing a Neighborhood Court, an adult criminal diversion program based on restorative justice that addresses criminal violations that impact the quality of life in the community. Restorative justice is accomplished in Neighborhood Court by involving the victim, the offender and community members. The Yolo County Program will expand to the jurisdiction of West County, Woodland and a new target population of homeless offenders in the county.
