Community remedy.

The community remedy is for anti-social behaviour and low-level criminal offences.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 received royal assent on 13 March 2014 and became fully operational from 20 October 2014. It introduced several simpler, more effective powers aimed at tackling anti-social behaviour and providing better protection for victims and communities.

 

The community remedy gives victims a say in the out-of-court punishment of perpetrators for low-level crime and anti-social behaviour.


A list of actions will be available which might be appropriate to be carried out by a person who has been engaged in anti-social behaviour or has committed an offence and is to be dealt with without court proceedings. These could include such things as mediation or doing unpaid work within the communities.


The Police and Crime Commissioner, working with the chief constable, will agree on the actions to be put on the Community Remedy document. The actions must be seen to be adequate and appropriate and have a positive effect on the perpetrator whilst acting as a deterrent to the offender and providing redress to the victim where appropriate.
