Community Courts primarily address “quality of life” crimes, such as petty theft, vandalism, graffiti, curfew and truancy etc. With community boards and the local police as partners, Community Courts have the bifurcated goal of solving the problems of the defendants appearing before the court, while using the leverage of the court to encourage the offenders to give back to their community in compensation for the damage they and others have caused.
