Lancashire's restorative justice scheme criticised
The use of restorative justice is ‘inconsistent’ across Lancashire police, according to a report.
The tactic often involves offenders coming face to face with their victims and apologising or making amends either instead of, or as well as, a more formal punishment.
Highbridge park shooting resolved with 'restorative justice'
The teenager accused of shooting a boy in the face with a BB gun in a Highbridge park last weekend has been dealt with by means of restorative justice, police said on Thursday (May 27th).
The youngster was called into Burnham police station where he met his 10 year-old victim to discuss Saturday's incident in Apex Park near Mallard Place, which was exclusively first reported on Burnham-On-Sea.com here.
