Restorative Approaches in Policing


The Essex Community Justice Center and Chief Hoague have been asked to be panelists at the “Restorative Approaches and Policing Institute” that is being held by The National Center on Restorative Justice (NCRJ) in February 2021.  The Institute is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance/Office of Justice Programs (BJA/OJP) and is being convened as a national “Think Tank” where we will engage in discussion with other leading practitioners on what restorative justice and policing practices/programs are currently happening around the US, what themes exist across these programs, what the need is for restorative approaches in policing, and what opportunities exist for expanding this work. 

Municipal staff plans to provide updates on racial justice work monthly. The updates will also be posted on Town and Village websites ( and and Front Porch Forum. If you are interested in receiving updates directly, please email Jill Evans, Director of the Essex Community Justice Center, at to be added to an email list.
