The direct accountability programs provide a community justice worker, who is at the court house daily. This worker works with the offender and the crown on referrals for diversion. This program is funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General.
The community justice worker works collaboratively to determine, implement and monitor sanctions, which may include:
- community service work
- letter of apology
- charitable donation
- referral to program options
- or alternative service within the community
