Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2000, $192,564)

Project summary for 2000-IJ-CX-0033 This application proposes to assess the outcomes of Vermont's statewide reparative probation program with traditional probation strategies used in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The results of the project will: determine the relative effectiveness of the reparative program in reducing recidivism; explore the characteristics of offenders for whom the reparative program is more effective than non-reparative program participants; examine whether or not reparative probation is more likely to result in an offender's willingness to accept responsibility for criminal behavior; determine whether reparative probation is more likely to result in the community's willingness to accept the offender back into the community; and identify conditions that support the victim's and community's support for the reparative probation model.
