Police give backing to new apology system
Many more minor crimes in Nottinghamshire are being dealt with by the criminals saying 'sorry', to their victims.
Police hope the move will free up officers so they have more time to patrol the streets.
The 'restorative justice' initiative aims to deal swiftly with minor crimes, without the case going to court and has seen criminals being made to apologise or compensate their victims.
