Have your say on how low-level crime and ASB should be dealt with by the Police

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 including: 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.

The Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner is inviting comments in a consultation on the options that are offered as part of the community remedy, and to suggest any alternative options.

To take part in a survey on the options offered, visit the Office of Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner's website at www.northantspcc.org.uk/communityremedy and respond by Friday 5 October 2018.

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