Crime Prevention and Victim Assistance Programs
The Center for Prevention and Restorative Justice (CPRJ) in the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office delivers a high-quality diversion model emphasizing accountability and prevention and offering an alternative to formal prosecution for juveniles and adults. CPRJ uses early intervention, validated assessment, and individualized case planning to match services to needs in order to effectively decrease risk of recidivism, increase protective factors, and improve community safety. CPRJ’s in-house Restorative Justice program provides high-quality restorative services in conjunction with diversion supervision, supporting the person who committed the crime to understand the impact of their actions, take meaningful responsibility, and repair the harm to the extent possible.
