Community Advisory Board (CAB)
Since 1997, a Community Advisory Board (CAB) has been in existence in Mohave County. Board members are advocates for juvenile courts. In July, 2016, three Boards were established to represent Mohave County’s three main population centers: Kingman, Lake Havasu City and Bullhead City. These Boards were established to represent the interests of Mohave County and its communities and for the expressed purpose of enhancing the effectiveness of the Mohave County Probation Department in the field of juvenile justice.
Each Board consists of a minimum of four public members, the local Juvenile Court Judge, a local probation supervisor, and the Juvenile Court Services Director. Each Board has a youth member who is either a junior or senior in high school for one year to coincide with the school year. Members are appointed by the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge of the Superior Court. Each member serves a term of not more than three years. All terms commence upon the signed order of the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge unless otherwise specified. Terms of membership are based on the Probation Department’s fiscal year as opposed to a calendar year.
Each community holds a minimum of two (2) meetings a year and a combined annual meeting at the end of the fiscal year. Special meetings of each Board may be called by the respective chairperson or the local juvenile judge.
New Board members complete an orientation within three months of appointment. Board members serve during this period. A vacancy on the Board may be filled by the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge for the unexpired term.
Members of the Board do not receive any monetary compensation for their services.
