Restorative Justice

The Center for Restorative Justice is a program utilized by the Wayne County Municipal Court. Referrals to this program are overseen by Angela Schaad of the Probation Department.

The Center for Restorative Justice is a non-profit, community based program designed to address some of the needs of victims and to restore the offender to the community. Cases are referred to the program by a branch of the criminal justice system. The program consists of a meeting between the offender and the victim. The victim is then given the opportunity to ask any questions and express their feelings. A written agreement is reached recognizing the offense and restoring equity/restitution.
