Perceptions of Procedural Justice Among Victims and Probationers

Lisa Newmark, Crime Victim Consultant

ABSTRACT
Baseline surveys (about one month after case disposition) were conducted with several hundred victims and probationers in two JOD sites and two comparison sites. These surveys include perceptions of procedural justice in the treatment received from various justice agencies and non-governmental agencies that serve victims and offenders. Results will be presented from analyses comparing across JOD and comparison sites, and testing the factors associated with perceptions of procedural justice (such as case outcomes, abuse history, demographic characteristics). The primary questions of interest are: how are perceptions of procedural justice affected by personal, situational, and case processing factors, and what short-term outcomes are associated with varying degrees of procedural justice?
