Hear real-world examples of Restorative Justice programs in practice. Assistant Chief of Police Kevin Kolbye from Arlington, TX, will outline how his department partnered with local Walmart stores to implement a First Offender Program. The results are a stunning 38% reduction in calls to the Arlington Police Department with thousands of labor hours given back to the department.
Watch this webinar as Assistant Chief of Police Kevin Kolbye talks to an offender coach from the First Offender Program. Moderator Jeff Powers from Corrective Education Company (CEC) will guide you and our panelists through the tough issues and potential outcomes of Restorative Justice programs. You will learn about program opportunities for your organization, community, or institution.
The panel includes Kevin Kolbye, an assistant police chief (Arlington, TX) and retired FBI special agent with extensive background in high-risk environments; Paul E. Jaeckle, senior director of asset protection strategy and solutions design for Walmart Stores, U.S.; Kellen McWhorter, first offender program coach; and and Jeff Powers, chief customer officer for Corrective Education Company.
Student Testimonial (Post-First Offender Program):
CEC: “Does it make you have a higher regard for the retailer for allowing you this option
instead of involving the police?”
Student Response: “Absolutely! The consequences are so bad. People make mistakes
and I really appreciate having the opportunity.”
