Restorative Justice Community Forum
Restorative Justice can help solve Tallahassee’s crime problem!
Attend this community forum and be a part of the solution.
Michael Butler, Public Safety Chief for the City of Longmont, Colorado, will discuss how restorative justice practices have worked successfully in his city.
Chief Butler has implemented a highly effective Restorative Justice program as an alternative to more traditional, retributive approaches to law enforcement. Restorative Justice emphasizes the need to repair the harm done to crime victims through a process of negotiation, mediation, victim empowerment, and reparation.
This event is sponsored by the Law Enforcement Action Partnership, Faith in Public Life, Good Shepherd Catholic Church, United Church in Tallahassee, Good Samaritan United Methodist Church, and Friends of Community Connections.
