Lincolnshire Police is supporting Restorative Justice Week, by raising awareness on how the service supports victims of crime.

Restorative Solutions CIC have been working in partnership with the Police and Crime Commissioner and police to empower victims and help them move on with their lives.

I have seen it in action and I am a great supporter of this as an option for victims to consider

Alan Hardwick, Police and Crime Commissioner

Restorative Justice enables victims of crime to explain directly how the offenders behaviour has affected them and to seek an explanation from the offender about what they did and why.

Suzanne McLardy, Restorative Justice Service development manager, said, “Our aim is to enable victims to access this service at all stages of the Criminal Justice System at a time that is right for them.”

Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick said: “It is a really important and valuable process for victims. I have seen it in action and I am a great supporter of this as an option for victims to consider.”
