Creating Community Connections

 
For Community

Crime affects everyone and we like to work together to  address harm and create safer communities. A restorative approach focuses on holding individuals accountable in a more meaningful way, repairing the harm caused by an offence, reintegrating individuals positively  back  into our  communities, and achieving a sense of healing and reparation for the community when harm has been caused. Community members are invited to participate in a Restorative process and play an important role in responding to and reducing crime.

Role of Community in the Restorative Process

    • Community has a voice in the response to crime
    • Actively participate in achieving justice in the community
      • supporting the client(s) in making positive,  future focused decsions
      • holding   individuals accountable for harm they have caused
      • encourage  and support reintegration back into the community
      • increase public confidence in the justice system
         
    • Community members focus on and respond to the causes of the crime:
      • understand how the behavior has affected the community
      • understand the circumstances and can help with rehabilitation, support individuals in making positive changes
      • keeps public informed of the ongoing issues
      • provide increased sense of safety through reparation and prevention
