Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership (EVRJP) was created in 2002 and is a joint venture between the Town of Estes Park Police Department and a 501c3 non-profit. The vision of this partnership was to invite the community to join with the Estes Park Police Department in providing restorative justice services to the Estes Valley. While initially offering an alternative solution in dealing with juvenile crime, EVRJP has since expanded to serve both youth and adults in proactive and responsive restorative processes. These programs include Community Group Conference, Community Circles, Restorative Community Mediation, Facilitated Conversations, Student Support and Accountability Circles, Girls Circles and Boys Councils. The program invites the community to assist in solving community problems, and is dependent on volunteers to run the processes.
