Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This report presents the main findings from a two year study examining the use of restorative justice within the police complaints system. Close observations were made of complaints processes (including restorative conferences) and interviews were carried out with complainants and police officers at various stages of the process. It concludes that the existing police complaints system operates by stifling dialogue and that the injection of restorative principles would be beneficial, particularly for complainants.
