Description
Prison Fellowship International has been a strong proponent of restorative justice, largely through activities of the CJR. It lessens problems that threaten to overwhelm the criminal justice system, such as prison and court overload, it opens up a new and useful role for victims in the official justice system, it confronts offenders with the harm to real people that their crimes cause, while offering them a way to actively take responsibility, and it reduces reoffending, reduces criminal justice costs, increases the number of cases brought to justice, helps victims recover from the trauma of crime, and leaves victims and offenders more satisfied that justice was done.
