HAMPSHIRE police and crime commissioner, Michael Lane, is consulting on options to be available as part of Community Remedy.

Community Remedy is used when police decide to deal with low level and minor crimes or anti-social behaviour outside of court, and it is said to help victims have a say in how an offender is dealt with.

Mr Lane said: “Use of the Community Remedy can help empower victims by giving them a say on which action the person who has caused them harm should take, whether this is providing an apology, community work, financial compensation, or taking a course to address their offending behaviour.

“Consulting on the Community Remedy is an important step in ensuring that the public has confidence that these disposals are being used appropriately and proportionately.”
