People in Eastwood and Kimberley are to be asked how they would like the police to deal with low-level crime as part of a new public survey.
The consultation exercise has been unveiled by Nottinghamshire’s Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Chris Cutland.
It is designed to gauge public opinion on the use of community remedies - a type of resolution which provides offenders with an alternative to going to court and recieving a criminal record.
These remedies can only be used in special circumstances such as very minor offences, when an offender has committed a low-level offence for the first time, when an offender shows remorse for their actions and when a victim agrees to the approach.
The survey is avaliable on Notts Police’s website.
