Beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2004, the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC) has collected survey data that measure the perceptions of offenders, victims, and community mem-bers who have participated in state-funded restorative justice (RJ) programs. Participants were administered pre- and post-test surveys immediately before and after the RJ meeting and were later mailed a final follow-up survey. During FY 2004 and 2005, survey data were collected from 1,706 participants on the pre-test, 1,588 participants on the first post-test, and 385 on the follow-up survey. This report presents the results from the survey data, which are summarized below. (excerpt)
