Council scoops national award

An initiative run by Surrey County Council and Surrey Police that is diverting hundreds of young people away from crime has scooped a prestigious national award.

The council’s youth support service and the police won the restorative justice category in the Howard League for Penal Reform’s  annual community awards.

Their initiative, which has also cut reoffending rates and provided significant savings for the public purse, was featured by the Guardian last year.

For more information about the award, visit the Howard League’s website.
