Restorative and Transformative Justice Pilot Program public meeting

It’s no secret that Trenton’s crime is an issue. This upcoming public meeting is one of many steps that Mercer County is taking to build a safer capital city.

On July 11 at 6:30 p.m., a meeting hosted by the Mercer County Department of Human Services in conjunction with the Mercer County Youth Services Commission will address restorative and transformative justice for the youth of Trenton returning home from juvenile facilities and out-of-home placements. The meeting aims to implement a community-based public safety system that supports these youth and keeps them from the youth justice system. The facilitators will provide information on the Restorative Justice HUB for Trenton youth and families and on potential services. 

The meeting is open to the public, so if you want to be a part of this important change to lead to a better Trenton, come down to the community room at Mercer County Community College (James Kerney Campus) 102 North Broad Street.
