Royston Smith – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Royston Smith on 2016-05-23.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps law enforcement agencies can take to ensure that community resolution agreements are honoured.

Mike Penning

A community resolution is a voluntary agreement between the victim and offender to a low level crime where the offender has admitted responsibility and as such is unenforceable.

If an officer has concerns at the outset that the offender may not comply an alternative course of action should be taken.
