Restorative Justice

Here is the original blog post along with interview 

In partnership with the Community for Restorative Justice (C4RJ), the Arlington Police Department is giving first-time misdemeanor offenders a second chance through restorative justice programs. Restorative Justice is a way to give the victim a voice and to let perpetrators see the impact of their actions, and it allows both the victim and the perpetrator to see each other as humans.

“For many years, the Arlington Police Department has been a partner with the Community for Restorative Justice. Community for Restorative Justice is a local non-profit. They’re really the only restorative justice program that’s truly recognized in the state at this point.” – Chief Richard Flynn.

The Arlington Police Department is one of twelve towns that are reference partners with the Community for Restorative Justice, as is the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.
