All of the court programs are offered for the 19th Judicial Circuit Court to assist the public by offering National Safety Council classes for Traffic Violators, a course for Divorcing Parents of Minor Children, and coordinating and providing volunteers to Court Services offering support and mentoring for the Adult and Juvenile Probation Programs and the Live Victim Impact Panel for DUI offenders.
This program is offered for the 19th Judicial Circuit Court and consists of several National Safety Council courses designed to promote safe-driving practices. Most of those attending defensive driving courses are directed to do so by the courts as a means of ticket reduction. Individuals may, however, register on their own as "volunteers" to meet the requirements of other jurisdictions, as "good faith" gestures for upcoming court appearances or as a means of developing personal skills.
We also offer the powerful National Safety Council’s "Alive at 25" program for teen drivers. This highly interactive four-hour program teaches young drivers how to take responsibility for their own driving behavior. Parents play an important role in properly preparing teens to drive. To help parents in this process, we offer the National Safety Council's "Alive at 25 Parent Program".
