* Neighborhood Court is an alternative to the traditional Criminal Justice system. Instead of prosecuting the case in criminal court, the DA's Office refers appropriate low level misdemeanor cases (plus infractions in some courts) to Neighborhood Court. Residents who live and work in the community where the incident occurred resolve the case using principles of Restorative Justice. Hearings are held at various locations throughout the City, not at 850 Bryant Street and lasts for about two hours.
Currently, there are courts in different parts of the City:
