Background Information on new innovative probation programme that will be hosted by Belvedere Youth Club CLG.

Belvedere Youth Club, CLG will work in conjunction with the Probation Service and other stakeholders to deliver YJARC and JARC to clients referred through existing pathways. The programme will be called “The Diamond” programme.

The Joint Agency Response to Crime programme (JARC) was established in 2014 as a multi-agency response to offender management between An Garda Síochána, the Probation Service and Irish Prison Service.. The strategic objectives of the programme are to:

  • Develop and further strengthen a multi-agency approach to the management of crime.
  • Prioritise offenders in order to develop programmes which will address their behaviour.
  • Reduce crime and increase public safety in local communities.

The aims of Y-JARC are to:

  • Develop and further strengthen a multi-agency approach to the management of crime.
  • Prioritise offenders in order to develop initiatives which will address their behaviour.
  • Reduce crime and increase public safety in local communities.

The Probation Service and An Garda Síochána were tasked by the Department of Justice with developing targeted proposals to address offending by young people in the Dublin North Inner City (NIC).

The central premise of the model is that improved communication and collaboration between respective agencies will help young people who have offended desist from further offending behaviour and will reduce offending behaviour in the area identified.

Participant Target Group:

A Youth-Joint Agency Response to Crime (Y-JARC) to support those aged 12-18 years is being developed in addition to a Joint Agency Response to Crime (JARC) to support those aged 18-24 years in the NIC.
