Major step forward for restorative justice
At the recent joint conference of the Association of Chief Police Officers and the Restorative Justice Council, Nick Herbert MP, the Minister for Policing and Criminal Justice outlined the government's vision for restorative justice. In particular, it outlined how it would be brought into the mainstream to transform the criminal justice system.
This speech represents a landmark in the debate about restorative justice and will transform how crime, anti-social behaviour and youth offending is handled, with significant potential to reduce re-offending and provide meaningful answers, solutions and closure for victims.
