Juvenile Justice: Accountability Enhancement: Accountability Enhancement is an award-winning program operated jointly between the Cambria County Juvenile Court and ACRP.  Accountability Enhancement supports the principles of Balanced and Restorative Justice. The mission of Accountability Enhancement is to develop character and create positive change in the behavior of juvenile offenders and to create positive change in our community.  By working through this program, juvenile offenders learn about their community, its people and its problems.
