What We Do
The Center for Prevention and Restorative Justice (CPRJ) in the Boulder County DA’s Office is a national leader in smart criminal justice reform as a result of its work pioneering innovative restorative diversion programs and other progressive initiatives. CPRJ’s restorative diversion programs offer an alternative to prosecution for youth and adults in appropriate cases that reduces the damaging collateral consequences of a criminal conviction while supporting meaningful accountability and repair of harm to victims and others who were affected by the offense. CPRJ diverts more than 600 cases each year, including more than 50% of district and county court juvenile cases.
Through CPRJ's in-house restorative justice program, diversion participants, victims and harmed individuals, community members, and family members are empowered to participate in a voluntary, facilitated restorative justice process that supports the person who committed the crime to take meaningful responsibility and repair the harm created by their actions. RJ participants report overwhelming satisfaction with the restorative justice process - 99% of victims and community members and 95% of defendants were satisfied, and 100% of victims who participated said the process met their needs and helped people move forward from the incident.
