Additional Information

Juvenile Diversion

The City of Lakewood’s Department of Human Services Juvenile Diversion Program is comprised of an alliance between City Departments, Human Services, Law, Police and Public Works, Lakewood Schools, Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court and various organizations/businesses to offer families a positive alternative to traditional Juvenile Court involvement.

The Juvenile Diversion Program is a voluntary program designed to offer first time juvenile offenders and their parents the opportunity to restore trust, give back to the community and to find ways to continue to be positively involved in their community. It is designed to empower families through education, direction and guidance for the betterment of the child, the City and its residents.

Youth must be referred to this program by Juvenile Court.
