RESTORATIVE JUSTICE training has returned as Terrace RCMP trained 13 people as facilitators at sessions here March 30 to April 1.

A Restorative Justice Forum is a process by which the victims, offenders, and community address the harm caused by crime, with the goal of achieving a fair outcome agreed upon by everyone.

A trained facilitator organizes and leads this process.

“The group [of facilitators] is eager to put to task what was learned,” says Terrace RCMP spokesperson Const. Angela Rabut.

Referrals can come to the group from the RCMP, the courts, the schools, community groups and agencies, or anyone. There is no cost for a restorative justice forum.

If you have an incident or matter that needs resolving, contact the Terrace Restorative Justice Program coordinator Sandy Pringle at 250-631-7282 or Const. Angela Rabut at 250-638-7429.

On May 2, the Terrace Restorative Justice Program will hold an information session at Ecole Mountainview at 7 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to attend to learn more about the program.

Program meetings will be held the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Ecole Mountainview.
