Have your say on how low level crime and ASB should be dealt with

Posted: Tue, 11 Sep 2018 17:31 by Alan Youel

Anti-social behaviour and low level crime affects people's life on a daily basis. Acts such as vandalism, damage to someone's property, noise, drunkenness, low level theft, or harassment can have a real impact on individuals, businesses and whole communities.

In low level cases where the offender admits the offence, and with the agreement of the victim, the victim can work with the police to choose how the offender should make amends from a list of options, called a community remedy.

There are different options available, and these include: providing the victim with financial compensation; the offender repairing the damage or undertaking other unpaid work; apologising to the victim or meeting them face-to-face; for an offender to attend treatment if they have drug or alcohol issues.

I would like to invite you to participate in a consultation my office are running on the options that are offered as part of the community remedy, and to suggest any alternative options you think are missing.

To take part in the survey, visit the PCC's website at www.northantspcc.org.uk/communityremedy and respond by Friday 28 September.

Please could I also ask you to promote this survey to the wider community and place on your website if you feel appropriate. I have attached an image for your use on any social media you have.

If you have any queries about this consultation please contact helen.cook@northantspcc.pnn.police.uk

Thank you in advance for participating.

Northamptonshire Police & Crime Commissioner
