Gena Gerrard offers a short outline for creating a community based restorative justice program. The steps are research, development and implementation. She stresses the need to be informed about the local crime situation and restorative justice theories. Gerrard recognizes the need to include all the local stakeholders (citizens and business owners) and the government in the process.
