Police in Lancashire are encouraging people to think about justice and how it could work for them.

The move is part of International Restorative Justice Week which is running this week.

The practice gives victims the chance to meet or communicate with the person or people who have caused them harm – to explain the real impact they’ve had on them.

It also holds offenders to account for what they’ve done and helps them to take responsibility.

Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner Clive Grunshaw said: “I want victims to know they have a voice and they will be listened to.

“I also want them to be able to get the answers to their questions about what has happened to them which they deserve.

“Restorative Justice is an important tool in ensuring that happens.

“I am confident this is a positive step toward making our communities better, safer places to live.”
