Youth crime

Visited Guildford Police Station today to learn more about the very successful Youth Restorative Justice approach led jointly by Surrey Police and Surrey County Council.The intent is to prevent reoffending by under 18 year olds with the offenders being encouraged to admit their crimes and respect the needs of their victims to "put right" the consequences of their offence. One to one support sessions are provided and over 1,000 young people in Surrey are helped through this process every year. The consequence has been a sharp reduction in the number of such youths entering the formal Court Justice System. Surrey is acknowlddegd to be a leader in this field. Congratulations.
