Restorative Approaches to Policing Think Tank

February 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am February 12, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

The National Center on Restorative Justice’s inaugural institute on the topic of restorative approaches to policing. Structured as a virtual “think tank,” we invited restorative justice and policing experts from across the United States who use restorative approaches in policing in a variety of models to participate. These experts included police leaders, restorative justice nonprofit partners, and academics with a specialty in restorative approaches in policing. Participants identified the most pressing issues and questions nationally related to policing to help shape the following institute. From this inaugural institute, we produced a restorative policing reference list that links research, approach outlines, and practical guides to assist in continuing knowledge and practice of restorative justice and policing work.

 Additionally, in the lead-up to the event, representatives from each of the programs and police departments involved were asked to fill out a survey providing some basic information about their program or approach. This information was then distilled into the one-page descriptions of each program.
