For 15B (Orange/Chatham) Recovery Court
Criminal Justice Resource Office (CJRO) oversees the pretrial release program,
drug treatment courts, the Misdemeanor Diversion Program, and jail mental
health services. Our office works with court and county stakeholders to enhance
and support diversionary and therapeutic alternatives to incarceration.
An extern would be expected to assist with any of our
programs. This would include attending court sessions, working directly with
clients in our programs and researching issues related to innovative and
evidence-based best practices for our programs.
Extern should be a skilled writer and communicator, as there
is much interaction with a wide variety of stakeholders. In addition, an
interest in criminal law and social justice issues would be preferred.
