This restorative process may occur as part of the case file flow for EJM (pre-charge diversion) or EJS (post-charge diversion) programs offered by RJCK. However, an RJ Community Conference could be deemed as beneficial in other instances of conflict involving youth (i.e. in the school setting), that do not necessarily involve law enforcement.
Upon referral/request for assistance in this area, and if deemed an appropriate ‘next step’ after consulting with the referral source, RJCK staff can help to organize and facilitate an RJ Conference in other community environments involving youth. This process is voluntary and all parties involved must be willing to participate; youth (under 16 years) must have parent/guardian consent to participate.
