Justice used against youths who caused fire
police are using restorative justice against two youths who caused
criminal damage in the town by setting a deliberate fire.
restorative justice orders have been served against the duo after
they set a fence on fire in Burnham Road.
of the offenders has been referred to the Youth Offending Team
and the Fire Setters Course run by Devon and Somerset Fire Service,
a scheme designed to help young people understand the consequences
of setting fires through visits and educational exercises,"
Sgt Ian Kennett told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
and Somerset Fire Service has also worked in partnership with
the police and Highbridge's King Alfred School by conducting lessons
around arson to all Year 8 students.
justice is an approach to justice that focuses on the needs of
victims and offenders, instead of the need to satisfy the principles
of law or the need of the community to exact punishment.
