OJJDP Video Message Highlights Restorative Justice
In this video, OJJDP Administrator Caren Harp and members of OJJDP’s Restorative Justice Working Group share their perspectives on the value of restorative justice practices in the juvenile justice system. Restorative justice focuses on holding offenders personally accountable to their victims and to the community at large—often through face-to-face meetings and reparative actions such as financial restitution to victims, the repair of victims' damaged property, or work for the betterment of the community.
