Restorative Justice Partnership with Police Training
Following the 2019 NACRJ Conference in Denver, CO, a post conference training will be offered in Denver by NACRJ member organization Longmont CommunityJustice Partnership (LCJP). For 24 years, the Longmont police have successfully referred hundreds of juvenile and adult cases involving misdemeanor and felony level charges directly to LCJP’s restorative justice programs. At this 2-day training, you will have the opportunity to learn from LCJP staff and Longmont police how to build and sustain this kind of partnership in your community.
Participants will learn practical information about how to establish effective case referral procedures, strategies for getting buy-in from police, and tips for preparing officers to participate in the RJ process. We will provide opportunity for small group dialogue to focus on your specific community needs, experiences, and questions. The success of LCJP’s police partnership is due in large part to city leadership and a team of 11 police liaisons who will be supporting the training. Learn directly from these professionals what has made restorative justice widely accepted and utilized by police in Longmont.
When: June 17 & 18, 2019 at the Downtown Denver Sheraton, 9am-5pm, $75/day
Who: RJ Program Directors & Practitioners, Police Officers and Command Staff, Community Leaders
