    Jail Diversions: The World of the Possible
    Exploring criminal justice solutions that can help reduce incarceration.
    Saturday, April 15, 2017

    This program explored criminal justice solutions that can help to reduce incarceration. Judge Cedric Kerns was our featured speaker bringing his experience with therapeutic courts that are in use in his community of Las Vegas.

    Judge Kerns received the “2009 Community Partner Award” from the Foundation for Recovery. In 2013, he received the “Visionary Award” from community counseling center for his work with families in the Youth Offender court. Also in 2013, the Nevada Supreme Court recognized Chief Judge Kerns with the “Legacy of Justice Award” making him the first limited jurisdiction judge to receive this recognition. The award is given to a person in the judicial system whose contributions, innovations and achievements resulted in significant improvements to the judicial system. In 2016, Chief Judge Kerns became the recipient of the Foundation for Recovery’s “Brick” award, the highest honor bestowed by the Foundation.

    Judge Kerns will be joined by other members of his team for a presentation that will highlight opportunities for our Whatcom County community to reduce and prevent incarceration. This program will be moderated by Judge Chuck Snyder who has recently been at the helm of the drug court program in Whatcom County. Sponsors for this event include: RiverStyx Foundation, The Law Offices of Brett, McCandlis, Brown, and Fairhaven Village Inn.
