COMMUNITY JUSTICE PROGRAMMING
Community Justice Programming (CJP) provides support to offenders and victims using restorative practices. Evidenced-based models include Restorative Conferencing, Neighborhood Accountability Boards, and Parent-Adolescent Mediation. Programs are coordinated by OVM staff with the assistance of trained volunteers. Referrals may come from county corrections, city or district attorneys, probation officers, law enforcement, school officials, families, or community members. Self-referrals are also welcome. Read on to learn more about CJP programs.

Additional Restorative Services: Though all services work to address cognitive behavior and decision-making skills, any of our services may include additional educational components to address shoplifting, anger management, and other specialized concerns. Our programs are also offered as an Immediate Intervention Program (IIP) for juveniles in the 9th Judicial District.
