Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, Martyn Underhill is today (Thursday 12 June) launching a three month consultation to give people a greater say in how anti-social behaviour and low level crime is dealt with in the county.
Victims can also ask the offender direct questions, mediate or receive an apology.
By bringing together the offender with the victim of their crime, it’s hoped they will better understand the impact of their actions. Community Remedy is a way of delivering justice without going through the traditional court process.
The first focus group will take place in Wareham on 24 June.
I want to consult as many people as possible over the next few months so I can collect a wide range of views.
Already the public in Dorset has suggested beach litter picks which is now on the menu of possible options.
