ACPO responds to a join thematic inspection report on the use of restorative justice in the criminal justice system


ACPO lead on restorative justice ACC Garry Shewan said:


“Used effectively, restorative justice can bring benefits to victims and communities and make a contribution towards reducing re-offending. Although police forces are increasingly drawing on it, there is variation across the police service and ACPO has recently published standards and guidance that support consistency and will help forces maximise the benefits of restorative justice.”
