Justice programs receive grants

Restorative justice programs in Lacombe and Hobbema are among 11 projects around Alberta sharing $306,000 in provincial grants. The money goes to promote mediation between victims and offenders, training programs, leadership development in schools, and aboriginal programs. The programs are an alternative or supplement to the criminal sentences offenders receive and can be initiated at any time during the criminal justice process. Samson Cree First Nation’s Nipisihkopahk Family Justice Circles received $10,000 for training in resolving conflict and shaping transformative justice. Innisfail Restorative Justice Society received $20,000 for the restorative justice program A Needed Alternative.
