Release: Immediate Justice Pilot Survey: Have your say!
In March of this year, the Government announced that under the Anti-Social Behaviour Plan, Dorset would be one of ten trailblazer police force areas to introduce the ‘Immediate Justice’ pilot scheme, where swift and visible punishments are delivered to those who have committed crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB).
The new scheme, targets those found committing low level crime and sets out to ensure the perpetrators make reparation for the damage they have inflicted on victims and the community and the Police and Crime Commissioner, David Sidwick would like your guidance on what types of actions you would like to see take place under the scheme.
The Commissioner said: “Adequate, effective, and prompt reparation is intended to promote justice and that is at the heart of ‘Immediate Justice’ as a concept – to make good and repair, to restore something to the way it should have been and to try and rebuild the community where the harm was caused.”
“What I want to know now from the people of Dorset is what they would like to see happen in their community. Would you like those who have done wrong to clean up graffiti or maintain parks and public spaces for example? It’s really important to me that we get this scheme right for Dorset and that can only happen with the input of the people – so please do complete the survey and tell me what you want to see happen in your community.”
