The LCCB testified this past week, on Tuesday December 5th, at the Violent Crime Task Force. The panel asked for information related to restorative justice and how our re-entry programs help individuals as they transition.

We provided the committee an overview of restorative justice in terms of the victim, the offender and the wider community. These models of re-entry use collaboration and best practices to reduce recidivism. We advocated for continued support of victims and maintaining the criminal justice reforms that assist those returning from prison.
