While the Community Justice Forum is not the only possible restorative response to conflict, it is a significant component in the restorative justice and community policing emphases of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This document is a learning tool and training aid in two ways: it is a guide to facilitate discussion in a Community Justice Forum; and it is an aid in the training of RCMP officers and community members in the process of Community Justice Forums. The document has three main sections: an outline of traditional versus restorative approaches to justice; an overview of the process of Community Justice Forums; and an introduction to the theory behind Community Justice Forums.
