This monograph explains community prosecution of delinquency cases, provides an overview of the potential interface between community prosecution and juvenile justice, discusses the legal and systemic issues that the APRI (American Prosecutors Research Institute) identified during its site visits, reviews some common issues between community prosecution and juvenile justice, and compares community prosecution with the emerging juvenile justice philosophy of balanced and restorative justice.
