The Clackamas County District Attorney's office has developed a Community Court pilot in the Overland Park neighborhood, which has Clackamas County's highest crime rates. The Community Court pilot, started in late January 2005, is based on a restorative justice approach and diverts misdemeanant defendants from the traditional criminal justice system. This project is for social service case management and employment services to support the Court's efforts.
