City of Duluth and the Municipal Court were recognized
City of Duluth wins honor from municipal court judges
The Duluth Municipal Court has received a Special Recognition from the Council of Municipal Court Judges. The award is presented to only one court or judge annually, within the State of Georgia.
The City of Duluth and the Municipal Court were recognized for its Teen Driver Court program, through which almost 1,000 young drivers and parents or guardians have attended. The program involves family members in the program, thereby extending the breadth of the program. This is an ongoing program within the court.
Institution of the award came after a disproportionate high number of Duluth area younger drivers were involved in road accidents. The Duluth Municipal Court took on a proactive role in addressing reckless driving and other infractions. The program offers younger offenders an important learning experience.
Approximately two years ago, the Duluth Municipal Court implemented its Teen Driver Court Program for defendants who are under the age of 21 years.
