Chris Cutland - Deputy PCC
Restorative Practice Strategy into Action - tender process now closed
The Police and Crime Commissioner, has a wide remit to cut crime and improve community safety in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. The Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Plan 2013-18 sets out the Commissioner’s intentions to achieve safer communities and improve trust and confidence in high quality policing by reducing crime and antisocial behaviour, ensuring fairer treatment of victims and citizens and demonstrating using public resources wisely. The plan includes a specific commitment to ‘expand the use of restorative justice’.
Restorative justice is a process which gives victims of crime the opportunity to tell offenders about the impact of their crime, to get answers to their questions, and to receive an apology. It holds offenders to account for their actions, helping them to understand the real impact of what they’ve done, and to take responsibility and make amends.
The Commissioner will receive ringfenced funding from Government from April 2014 to deliver restorative justice services. Funding for victims’ support services will follow from October 2014. A new model of victims’ support services, which will include the independent delivery of a high quality restorative justice service, will be delivered from April 2015. It is hoped that partners’ funding for these types of services can be aligned with the Commissioner’s funding.
