Extrajudicial Measures (EJM)
The EJM Program is intended to divert young persons away, pre-charge, from formal criminal proceedings and into a program of rehabilitation. The EJM Program is designed for young persons who have been involved in non-violent offences for the first time. EJM allows the police to address the actions of young persons without utilizing the formal youth justice court system. The young person will be met for an initial intake to determine the most suitable program, taking into consideration the young person’s interests, skills, and abilities.
- Young persons between their 12th and 18th birthday at the time of the offence
- Young persons residing in Peel or Caledon
