Criminal Justice Students Visit Greenville Community Court

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Members of Restorative Justice course at Thiel College visited the Greenville Community Court at the District Judge’s Office in Greenville, Pa., on Feb. 19 and witnessed firsthand Pennsylvania’s balanced and restorative justice legislative mandates.

Restorative justice emphasizes an equal concern for crime victims, offenders and the community. It also seeks to focus on the harm done to persons and relationships rather than only the violation of a law. The Community Court Program has been in operation since April 1999 and is authorized by the Mercer County Court of Common Pleas to serve as a diversionary program for first-time offenders.
