Documents

The Community Remedy Document

When dealing with low level crime and anti-social behaviour, Community Remedy gives victims a say in how the offender is punished. It allows police in their local areas to deal with low level crime and manage the offenders within the community in consultation with the victim.

Victims Charter

The Commissioner pledged to deliver a new Victims’ Charter for West Mercia within 100 days of taking office.

The charter creates a means of detailing precisely what services victims can expect and what the police and other partners are expected to provide. It is a means by which the PCC, the police and contracted partners can be held to account for delivering improved and consistent services.
