Community Court 

Community Court Vision Statement: 

Renton Municipal Community Court seeks to achieve compassionate accountability while building a stronger and safer community. 

Community Court Mission Statement:

Through case management, access to social services and peer networks of support, we utilize a collaborative problem-solving approach to break the cycle of crime, reduce recidivism and decrease the overall impact on the justice system involving offenders committing minor nonviolent offenses. 

What is Community Court?

Community Court is a non-traditional, therapeutic approach that works to provide practical, targeted solutions rather than traditional punishment in cases involving low level offenses.

Working together with community service partners specializing in housing services, education, employment, chemical dependency, health care, licensing, mental health services, and veteran services,   we connect participants with the resources needed to restore them and the community. 

When Does Community Court Meet?

Renton Municipal Community Court (RMCC) has partnered with Issaquah Municipal Community Court (IMCC) and meets every Thursday at 10:30am. Participants appear in their respective courts first, then a Virtual Resource Center (VRC) is offered starting at 12:30pm. The partnership between RMCC and IMCC allows us to offer a wider variety of service partners, share valuable resources and encourages collaboration that is beneficial to both cities.
