Community Courts

Typically, a community court is a problem solving court that addresses quality of life or “nuisance” cases and takes a more proactive approach to public safety.  There are several different models for community courts.  Some meet in traditional courthouses and others meet in storefronts, former schools, or churches.  All of these courts are experimenting with different ways to provide appropriate services and sanctions.
