Citizen Review Board

111 E. 11 St., Lawrence, KS 66044


Opens Monday at 8 a.m.

Douglas County Citizen Review Board (CRB) staff operates six boards composed of volunteers that assist the juvenile court by reviewing cases involving children in need of care or juvenile offenders. The CRB staff trains volunteers and administers the processes involved in the boards' operations.

The local CRB office conforms to the rules of the state Office of Judicial Administration (OJA), which provides oversight and funding. The Douglas County CRB meets Kansas Supreme Court standards and, therefore, is eligible to review cases assigned by the District Court.

Douglas County CRB is a grant-funded program currently receiving funds from the Permanent Families Fund administered by the Office of Judicial Administration and from the Intervention/Graduated Sanctions Grant Block from the Juvenile Justice Authority. CRB also receives other private donations.
