Community Remedy Consultation
July 24, 2014 Leave a comment
Under the Act the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) must prepare a Community Remedy Document (“CRD”) for Warwickshire. The CRD is a list of actions which could be applied to a person who has engaged in ASB or has committed an offence but where court proceedings are not being pursued.
Under the Act, the relevant policing body must consult relevant community members in preparing the CRD.
In order to assist in the preparation of the CRD, the OPCC, Warwickshire has prepared a list of questions which are aimed at those who will apply the remedies or be affected by them.
It is not an exhaustive list. There will be an opportunity for you to tell us if we have missed anything from this list. Once all the consultation responses have been received and analysed a final version of the CRD will be agreed and signed by the Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire.
