This report examines Vermont's Reparative Probation Program and its ability to realize identified program goals. The reparative program uses a board of trained citizen volunteers to convene with the offender and attempt to work out a solution to the problem created by the offense. The program was developed to realize four outcomes: 1) community involvement, 2) address victims' needs, 3) restore communities, and 4) make offenders responsible. The researchers found substantial community involvement in the program and that, in general, the program was effective in meeting victims' needs, though their participation was limited. Further, they found that the program makes extensive use of community service, offenders typically complete their service, and the community is pleased with it. Also, most offenders are successful and law-abiding, and most of them complete tasks that help them understand the harm and gain competencies. The report concludes that the findings largely demonstrate a successful program.
