Juvenile & Adult Diversion Program

The Center for Prevention and Restorative Justice (CPRJ) in the 20th Judicial District Attorney’s Office delivers a high-quality diversion model that emphasizes accountability and prevention, applies restorative justice practices and principles, matches services to needs, and effectively achieves community safety by decreasing risk of recidivism.

Restorative Justice Program

The Center for Prevention and Restorative Justice’s in-house restorative justice program, DARJ, provides high-quality restorative services including:

  • Community group conferencing
  • Victim offender dialogue
  • RJ processes for drug or alcohol-related violations

Victims and harmed individuals, community members, and family members are empowered to participate in a facilitated restorative justice process that supports the person who committed the crime to take meaningful responsibility and repair the harm created by their actions.

Emphasis on Prevention & Community Safety

  • ~30% of juvenile cases diverted annually
  • 95% successful completion of juvenile diversion
  • 100% successful completion of adult diversion
  • 100% of participants say diversion helped them make positive changes in their life
  • Involvement of law enforcement and community members in many RJ processes
  • 98% restitution collection for no-file diversion cases
  • 96% successful completion of community service
  • 100% victim satisfaction with DA’s restorative justice services

Gun Safety

Boulder DA’s Commitment to Reducing Gun Violence: Gun violence has been on the rise in urban areas across the nation, and we are all too often confronted with news of another tragic mass shooting or gun-related injury or death. The Boulder District Attorney’s Office is working hard to make our community safer by providing increased resources to prosecute crimes involving gun violence, supporting legislation to prevent gun violence, partnering with other agencies to encourage safe gun storage, and engaging with community groups and advocates. We have hope that, together, we can reduce all forms of gun violence. Click here to learn more.
