Victim Offender Mediation Program (VOMP)
The VOMP uses a restorative justice model to bring juvenile offenders ages 12-21 together with their victims to negotiate some form of compensation to the victims.
Offenders are given the opportunity to understand the human impact of their actions and are held accountable in a constructive and humane manner. The process also seeks to reinforce cognitive and problem-solving skills for future use.
The VOMP program process serves to reconnect and hopefully reintegrate the offender back into the community that was directly impacted by their actions. Services are provided in Bernalillo, Sandoval and Valencia County. Informal VOMP is provided for those youth on Time Waivers and only for Bernalillo County. The Programs are funded through the CYFD (Children, Youth, and Families) Juvenile Justice Services.
