At the Restorative Justice Center, we offer a number of restorative justice programs, which bring together offenders, victims, and others who were harmed by the offender’s actions, deal with the consequences of a harmful event, and come to an agreement on how best to repair the harm.
We offer victim-sensitive problem-solving conferencing that demonstrates how a community can constructively resolve their own problems when provided with a forum to do so. Restorative justice conferencing can have positive benefits for all involved, and can be offered at any time during the criminal justice process, including:
- As a diversion when the youth is taken in by MPD
- As the youth is processed through the judiciary system
- During incarceration/probation period
- After release from incarceration/probation
