The City of Mobile has placed a social worker in each of its police precincts to work with police officers in providing crime prevention services to families living in the precinct. Strickland youth Center has entered into a partnership with the City of Mobile Police Department to provide probation officers in each precinct to work with the social worker and the police officers. The probation officers maintain a caseload of adjudicated children living within that precinct. The probation officer operates out of the precinct office and maintains close contact with the youths as well as conducting regular curfew checks. In this partnership, a team approach is utilized to help control delinquent behavior and assist families with services needed for fulfilling their parental responsibilities.
The Strickland Youth Center had engaged in several public and private partnerships, which have enhanced the Court’s work with delinquent and nondelinquent youth.
An alternative school for adjudicated and at-risk youth, is housed at the former Rotary Rehab Complex on 1874 Pleasant Avenue. Started in September 1998, the school is an accredited education program for youth in grades 6 through 12, who otherwise may never finish high school or obtain a GED certificate.
