North Carolina Association of Community Restitution Programs (NCACRP)
"The best minute we spend.....is the one we invest in people"
What is NCACRP? When a crime occurs in the community, the entire community suffers the loss, not just the victim. Restitution programs provide an excellent means of reconciling the community to its former state by requiring the offenders to be more responsible and accountable for their actions. The offenders learn how crime affects the entire community as they fulfill their obligation to the victim and the community through service work within the community.
In the early 1980’s community restitution programs began evolving across North Carolina. Staff from these programs expressed a desire for a communication network. This culminated in the formation of the North Carolina Association of Community Restitution Programs in January of 1983.
Why a Statewide Association?
The purpose of the North Carolina Association of Community Restitution Programs is to encourage communication and cooperation among community restitution programs, the criminal justice system, and the community. The Association also provides networking opportunities for its members.
