About this event
Diversion and out of court disposals are effective in reducing reoffending and in addressing the needs of victims. Diverting more crimes from court would help reduce the backlog of court cases. But is nervousness about public reaction to diversion holding us back from using them more often? And is that nervousness justified?
The good news is that Transform Justice research suggests the public are broadly supportive of resolving crimes without going to court. But how should we frame the case for diversion? Join us for the launch of our new diversion messaging guide to hear more about this research into public attitudes towards diversion from court.
We will be joined by Commander Alison Heydari, the National Police Chief’s Council lead for out of court disposals and Rick Muir, director of the Police Foundation (host of the independent Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales).
The event will take place online and details will be circulated to registered attendees before the event. This research and event is funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation.
