Longmont Community Justice Partnership
Posted on January 19th, 2011
I recently became President of the Board of Directors of a local charity called Longmont Community Justice Partnership.
It’s an Restorative Justice organization that brings together offenders, victims, and the community with the goal of repairing harm that has been done by an offender. This might sound “soft on crime” but experience has shown that sitting across from your victim and members of the community can be more difficult than our traditional criminal system.
Offenders have a contract agreed upon by all 3 parties, 90% of offenders complete the contract, and there is only about a 10% re-offending rate (versus 68% national average).
I think it’s making a big difference in Longmont, and is becoming a model for the state of Colorado and the nation.
Check out the website and call me if you want more information. I’m really proud of the work being done at LCJP.
