The Neighborhood Youth Panel (NYP) was the first Juvenile Diversion Program established in Prince George’s County Md. The State Department of Juvenile Services trained and authorized C-PAC to convene formal juvenile hearings for first time offenders. The Objective of the NYP has continued to be an effort to divert youth who have committed juvenile offenses from obtaining criminal records that would negatively impact their lives. The NYP has processed more than five thousand cases with a success rate of 87 per cent. The NYP is a resource made available to all law enforcement agencies.
