Community Court

The Hartford Community Court is a unique partnership between the City of Hartford, the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, community leaders and the residents of Hartford. This specialized session of the Connecticut Superior Court is devoted solely to addressing "quality of life" crimes. These misdemeanor offences include breach of peace, petty larceny, threatening, prostitution and violations of the Municipal Code such as excessive noise, public drinking, disorderly conduct and discharge of pollutants.

Offenders of "quality of life" crimes are accountable to the criminal justice system and to the community where the crime was committed. Sanctions imposed by the court include but are not limited to fines, jail time and community service.

The City of Hartford's Department of Human Services oversees and coordinates the Human Services component of the court. The City's staff works jointly with the State of Connecticut's Department of Social Services, Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and Capitol Region Mental Health Center to address the root causes that may contribute to the sanctioned behavior.

For more information about the Community Services Division and its services contact Elby Gonzalez-Schwapp, at (860) 757-4700.
