Community Remedy

The Community Remedy was introduced by the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act in October 2014.  Its purpose is to provide victims with more of a say in the out-of-court punishment of offenders.

The Community Remedy provides a list of the out-of-court punishment options which can be presented to a victim by a Police Officer so they can choose how an offender can be dealt with when they commit low level and minor crimes or anti-social behaviour. The types of offences appropriate for a Community Remedy include low-level criminal damage, low value theft, and minor assaults (without injury) and anti-social behaviour.

Gwent Police Officers will use community remedies either as part of an informal community resolution or a more formal conditional caution. It will mean that victims get justice quickly and the offender has to face the consequences of their actions.

The options were formulated following a consultation fielded by PCC Ian Johnston in July 2014 which involved those in policing, criminal justice stakeholders and the public. Nearly 1,000 people completed the consultation and a total of four options have now been agreed by Mr Johnston and the Chief Constable of Gwent Police.

The options agreed are:

1. Reparation to damage caused e.g. repairing damage to property, cleaning graffiti, returning stolen property;

2. Paying for the damage caused to be repaired or for the property stolen to be replaced;

3. A verbal or written apology;

4. Or a restorative approach which allows victims and offenders to put their views to each other without meeting face to face
