Longmont Community Justice Partnership (Colorado) uses a restorative justice process to provide alternative sentencing. Specifically, it is a juvenile diversion option that may be used in place of traditional school discipline. It provides holistic, community-focused solutions to youth crime and violations of school rules. In addition to identifying the major partners involved in this program, this article lists and summarizes the guiding principles and values of the program.
