Why Restorative Justice?

Restorative Justice recognizes that crime hurts everyone — victims, offenders, and community. It creates an obligation to make things right.

Restorative Justice is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by criminal behavior. It is best accomplished through cooperative processes that allow all willing stakeholders to meet, although other approaches are available when that is impossible. This can lead to transformation of people, relationships and communities.
