Welcome

 

 

COMING IN JANUARY, 2016:

 

 

Police Complaint Mediation

 

In Baltimore, Community Mediation will begin offering Police Complaint Mediation services, in January 2016. Residents and officers will be able to have face to face dialogue about difficult interactions, through this program. Pictured below, 15 mediators and 5 police officers attended the 2-Day, advanced Police Complaint Mediation training. Police officers completed the training so that they will be ambassadors for the program, within the Baltimore City Police Department.

 

 

#Run4ReEntry: $5,000 GOAL

 

 #Run4ReEntry raised $6,150!!! THANK YOU!!

 

When people are able to have mediation before they are released from prison, it decreases recidivism. This Re-Entry Mediation service is available in MD prisons, but in order for families to have mediations with incarcerated persons, they need transportation to the prisons. For some, it's a trip they can't afford. On 11/14 and 11/15, Lorig Charkoudian, Executive Director of Community Mediation Maryland, ran the distance of the trip to prison, to raise $5,000 for those families. WE RAISED $6,150!!!

 

 Watch this NBC news story to see how the Jordan family used mediation before Basha returned home from prison... and how it changed their lives!
