Community Remedy

Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold is asking for views on the community remedy, a scheme that gives victims a say in out of court punishment of people who commit low- level offences.

The community remedy was introduced to provide a speedy but effective way to resolve low level crime and anti-social behaviour and gives victims a voice in being able to choose the consequence for the offender, where the offender admits the offence. It is up to the victim if they want to get involved.

The community remedy options currently available include: the offender providing the victim with financial compensation, repairing the damage or other unpaid work, apologising to the victim or attending treatment for drug and alcohol issues or receiving mental health support.

Have your say on how much you agree with the current list of options within the community remedy and take the opportunity to suggest any alternative options they think are missing.
