Hackney is one of the areas identifed as a potential 'Pioneer area' where a number of the proposals will be piloted over the coming year:
- The introduction of Community Prosecutors with a specific role to engage with communities alongside the police, courts and others.
- Community Impact Statements which will give communities the chance to feed in their views on crimes in their area and the impact they have on local people.
- Extending the use of Citizens’ Panels to give local people more say in how offenders on Community Payback schemes repay the community for their crimes through tough projects.
- Establishing ‘Virtual Community Justice Teams’ to apply a more intensive problem-solving approach to anti-social and criminal behaviour.
