Out-of-court disposals allow the police to deal quickly and proportionately with less serious, and often first-time, offending which can be resolved without a prosecution at court.
Through the Community Remedy, victims of anti-social behaviour can have a say in how offenders should make amends for their actions, based on a list of choices.
The community trigger gives victims and communities the right to demand that agencies deal with persistent anti-social behaviour.
Becoming a victim of crime is often a traumatic experience. Many victims feel that their life has been turned upside down, and what was once normal and familiar no longer feels safe.
