Community Remedy

The Community Remedy was introduced by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act in October 2014. Its purpose is to provide victims with a say in the way offenders are dealt with when they commit low level and minor crimes or anti-social behaviour (ASB).
Section 101 of the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 places a duty on Police and Crime Commissioner’s to prepare and publish a Community Remedy document for its area following consultation.

The current Community Remedy document was agreed on 20 October 2014 following a previous consultation exercise.

This survey will inform the development of an updated Community Remedy document that will be introduced in 2019.

There may be some terms in this survey that are unfamiliar definitions can be found here

1. Which area do you live in?
2. Are you responding as an individual or on behalf of an organisation?
3. Please select the options that you feel would be an appropriate response for first time anti-social behaviour/low level crime offence and would support being included in the Community Remedy menu
4. The most frequently recorded offence types in relation to low level crime and anti-social behaviour are violence (with and without injury), shoplifting, criminal damage, possession of drugs and public order offences.Please select all of the targeted interventions/rehabilitative options below that you think may prevent future offending? 
5. Do you think that offenders should be required to pay for their own intervention?

6. If you answered yes to question 5, do you think:

7. Should there be a fund to enable offenders who suffer genuine financial hardship to access targeted intervention? 
8. Community Resolutions are voluntary and some targeted interventions cost £60. In order to increase compliance, do you support the use of modern technology to deliver some targeted interventions? For example, an online course around the impact of offending, possibly including personal testimonies of victims.
9. Many female offenders experience chaotic lifestyles involving substance misuse, mental health problems and homelessness – these are often the product of a life of abuse and trauma. Do you support interventions that address the specific needs of women?

10. Adverse Childhood Experiences(ACEs) can be stressful or traumatic events that children and young people can be exposed to. ACEs are known to increase the likelihood of offending throughout the life course. As part of the community remedy, do you feel that we need to have tailored interventions to meet the needs of young people?

11. Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) offenders are more likely to deny their guilt than white defendants, thought to be due to a lack of trust in the justice system. This then affects their ability to be considered for an out-of-court disposal. One approach being considered by Government to counter this is deferred prosecution. Would you support this approach in Hampshire?

12. Would you choose to use the Community Remedy document if you were a victim of low level anti-social behaviour and it was offered to you?

13. Have you been a victim of low level crime or anti-social behaviour in the past 12 months?

14. Would you be interested in attending a focus group (to be held in February 2019) to explore the survey responses of the public in more detail?

If you answered yes to question 14 please provide contact information.
