RJI is pleased to share this video which interviews law enforcement officers about their views of restorative justice.
RJI appreciates this video explaining how the Edmonton Police Services uses restorative justice in cases of juvenile crime. http://www.edmontonpolice.ca/AboutEPS/CommunityInitiatives/ResorativeJustice.
RJI supports a crime victim’s right to choose restorative justice. No one should decide for a crime victim whether to participate in a restorative justice process but the victim. It is an individual decision.
Victims of violent crime are increasingly asking for restorative justice. Is the justice system opening the doors to allow victims to participate in restorative justice? RJI believes restorative justice should be a victim’s right.
RJI appreciates this Associated Press story about the use of restorative justice in schools in Los Angeles, California. http://www.buffalonews.com/apps/pbcs.
