Balanced and Restorative Justice

 

 
Community Protection refers to the right of all Pennsylvania citizens to be
and feel safe from crime.
 
Victim Restoration emphasizes that, in Pennsylvania, a juvenile who
commits a crime harms the victim of the crime and the community, and
thereby incurs an obligation to repair that harm to the greatest extent
possible.
 
Youth Redemption embodies the belief that juvenile offenders in
Pennsylvania have strengths, are capable of change, can earn
redemption, and can become responsible and productive members of
their communities.
