PSAEW: “The benefits of Restorative Justice for both victims and offenders are well evidenced"

Following the publication today by HMIC of the Joint Inspection Report – Facing Up To Offending, the Police Superintendents’ Association of England and Wales has restated its full support for the use of Restorative Justice, where appropriate, and welcomes the recommendations in the report.

Association President Derek Barnett says:

“The benefits of Restorative Justice for both victims and offenders are well evidenced, and the introduction of a College of Policing later this year should enable the police service to ensure a more consistent approach to Restorative Justice as well as the ability to further develop research in this area through links with academia.

Furthermore, the implementation of the recommendations in this report that extend to other criminal justice agencies will help more victims to recover from the impact of crime, and more offenders to understand the impact of their actions on others.”
