Out of Court Disposals Scrutiny Panel
Norfolk and Suffolk Out of Court Disposals Scrutiny Panel has been set up to independently scrutinise the use of Out of Court Disposals. The role of the Panel is to ensure that the use of out of court disposals is appropriate and proportionate, consistent with national and local policy, and consider the victims’ wishes where appropriate.
NB: Due to the Government restrictions in place during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Out of Court Disposals Scrutiny Panel meetings were unable to go ahead as planned during 2020 and early 2021. Furthermore, the meeting scheduled for the 6 June 2023 was cancelled due to the Chair stepping down and no replacement being appointed in time, which the PCC expresses disappointment in. The next meeting is scheduled for the 5 September 2023.
