Welcome to Cranbrook and District Restorative Justice Society
Crime is a violation of the law but is also a violation of people and relationships and a disruption to peace in a community.
The criminal justice system deals with offenders, while restorative justice processes address the needs of victims and the community and holds offenders accountable for the harm they caused. It can bring victims, offenders and the community a more satisfying experience of justice.
Most offenders who take part in restorative justice programs keep their commitments, which may include making restitution or doing community service. Some research suggests that participating in a restorative justice process may reduce or stop offending.
Community Accountability Programs
The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General is committed to a restorative justice approach involves victims, offenders and communities in achieving justice and addressing the harm caused by crime. The ministry promotes restorative justice by funding Community Accountability Programs (CAPs).
