The Denton County Juvenile Probation Department’s Restitution Programs promote the restorative juvenile justice concept of rehabilitation of juvenile offenders by holding juveniles accountable for their behavior through a meaningful offender responsibility program that increases awareness of personal accountability for delinquent behavior and community membership. These restorative justice programs include:
Monetary Restitution: Money paid by offenders or parents to victims.
Direct Service Restitution: Work done by offenders to restore losses, repair damages, or provide compensation services of equivalent value.
Community Service Restitution: Work performed by offenders as an effort to repay the community through meaningful volunteer work performed for a non-profit agency.
