Restorative justice "is a postcode lottery"

from the article on PublicService.co.uk:

Restorative justice vs perfomance targets....

from UKPOLICEONLINE Discussion Forum:

Hello all,

My force are introducing restorative justice as an alternative to court, and this will primarily be aimed at young offenders. Restorative justice has received a mixed reception and was hoping forum members could share their thoughts and experiences from their own forces. I think its a good idea, and a move away from chasing performance targets has got to be a good think, or are performance targets still applied?? any thoughts gratefully received.
