Surrey’s Police and Crime Commissioner has been tasked by the national government to consult with the people regarding community remedies (see below). You can add your views in this survey. The survey is not very rigorous and I found the first question hard to answer properly but at least one can make further points in the comments box.
A community remedy document is to be produced with the opinions of the people of Surrey in mind. This document will be a list of options, chosen by the public, which will be available to victims of low-level crime and anti-social behaviour. One of the priorities is to put victims at the heart of the criminal justice system, and this aims to do that. Victims should see see justice more quickly, and offenders will face immediate and meaningful consequences for their actions.
Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
Section 101 of this act stipulates the following:
Each local policing body must prepare a community remedy document for its area, and may revise it at any time.
(2) A community remedy document is a list of actions any of which might, in the opinion of the local policing body, be appropriate in a particular case to be carried out by a person who—
(a) has engaged in anti-social behaviour or has committed an offence, and
(b) is to be dealt with for that behaviour or offence without court proceedings.
(3) For the purposes of subsection (2), an action is appropriate to be carried out by a person only if it has one or more of the following objects—
(a) assisting in the person’s rehabilitation;
(b) ensuring that the person makes reparation for the behaviour or offence in question;(c) punishing the person.
(4) In preparing or revising the community remedy document for its area a local policing body must—
(a) have regard to the need to promote public confidence in the out-of-court disposal process;
(b) have regard to any guidance issued by the Secretary of State about how local policing bodies are to discharge their functions under this section;
(c) carry out the necessary consultation and take account of all views expressed by those consulted.
