New way to tackle Nottingham crime

Nottingham is set to become a crime and justice pioneer area.

“The new pioneer areas will each appoint a dedicated person – a neighbourhood crime and justice (NCJ) coordinator -to ensure that community payback is visible and tough, that victims of crime are supported to reduce re-offending and that the public know the rights that the policing pledge gives them…

The new coordinators will work to:

  • let the public know their entitlement in the policing pledge..
  • open up the criminal justice system so that there are clear and public consequences for criminals that the public get to know about..
  • ensure that services and support for victims and witnesses like separate seating arrangements at court are up to scratch “

This just makes me wonder what our local justice system has been doing? Surely a principal part of any effective justice system is that there are clear and public consequences for criminals.

As many people know our justice system doesn’t seem to be able to deliver this.  But I fail to see how a lone neighbourhood crime and justice co-ordinator can turn that around. Sounds like a terrible job!
