Program 2

Longmont Community Justice Partnership

Restorative justice is a process that invites all persons involved in a crime or conflict to have an equal voice in repairing all harms of the incident to the greatest extent possible.

How does it work? Victims with their support people, offenders with their support people, and community members come together. They sit in a circle
guided by trained facilitators to participate in at three-step process:
1.) Offender tells what he/she did and why.
2.) Victim and other participants tell how they were affected by what happened.
3.) Together, everyone present creates a plan to repair the harm.
