  • Restorative justice program aims to heal harm caused by crimes
    November 30, 2021

    The Douglas County District Attorney’s Office is working with local nonprofit Building Peace Inc. to establish a Restorative Justice program.

    In restorative justice programs, a trained facilitator convenes the offender with a victim or victims to talk about the act and how it affected the victim and the community. Through this process, the offender is held accountable for their actions and makes amends and the victims can begin healing.

    “The community benefits, the victim benefits and the offender benefits,” Valdez said. “It’s a win-win-win.”
