Upper Makefield Township

Volunteers Needed - Youth Advisory Aid Panel

The Upper Makefield Township Police Department is seeking volunteers for the Youth Aid Panel.  The Youth Aid Panel is an alternative to juvenile court for first-time, non-violent juvenile offenders.  It meets on the third Thursday of the month to hear cases and act as informal judges who decide how a juvenile offender can repair the harm caused by their delinquent act.  Training for new panel members will be provided in Spring 2017.  Learn more about the program and the requirements at this link .

If you are interested in this rewarding opportunity to serve and help the youth of our community, visit www.bucksyouthaid.org for an application.   Applications are due by March 15, 2017 and should be submitted to Upper Makefield Police Sergeant Tim Rauch at trauch@uppermakefield.org.  They can also be mailed or delivered to the Upper Makefield Police Department, 1076 Eagle Road, Newtown, PA  18940.

This program has the endorsement of Magisterial District Judge Michael W. Petrucci.
