How can West Yorkshire Police improve the service provided to victims and witnesses of crime, and achieve better outcomes? What are Out of Court disposals and Restorative Justice and how can these benefit victims and local communities?
These are expected to be among the issues under the spotlight at the next West Yorkshire Police live webchat this Monday, August 5, entitled “Bringing Offenders to Justice.”
People are invited to ask questions, or watch the hour-long discussion at 7pm via the West Yorkshire Police website Visit the page now to set up an email reminder.
Responding to the public questions and comments are Chief Inspector Mark McManus and Inspector Rick Sumner, of the Force Performance Improvement Unit.
Ch Insp McManus said they were looking forward to the online discussion.
He said: “West Yorkshire Police work closely with partner agencies to bring offenders to justice.
“We strive to put victims and witnesses first, and support them through the Criminal Justice System.
“We are always looking at how we can improve he service we provide to victims and witnesses, achieving better outcomes.
“We are also expecting questions about restorative justice and community resolution, and about how we and other agencies try to manage offenders, both in custody and the community, to reduce crime and re-offending rates. “
Monday’s webchat will be the last in the present series of webchats, with previous ones covering cannabis, legal highs, volunteering as well as euro-cylinder burglaries. More webchats are already being planned for a future series. Click here to view previous web chats.
