Commissioner praises Restorative Justice team recognised with national accreditation

Training Provider Quality Mark

The Commissioner, Clive Grunshaw, joined representatives from Lancashire Constabulary to celebrate the Training Provider Quality Mark (TPQM) accreditation which is granted by the Restorative Justice Council and enables training providers to show that they have been externally recognised and meet national standards in restorative training delivery.

He said: “Restorative Justice can be a really important process giving victims a chance to get answers following a crime and often giving them a way to move on with their lives. The team at Lancashire Police and Lancashire Victim Services can offer the advice and support people need to take this difficult but often important step.

“This accreditation recognises the high quality standard that is being set here in Lancashire, training others to support those who choose to go down the path of Restorative Justice, which I am confident is a positive step towards making our communities better, safer places to live, and to giving victims of crime and anti-social behaviour a real voice.

“I will continue to support the work of our officers in Lancashire in delivering this important service and helping other victims get the justice and answers they seek.”

Helena Cryer, Lancashire Constabulary Restorative Justice Manager said:

“I’m thrilled to announce that our Restorative Justice Team at Lancashire Constabulary have been awarded the TPQM Quality Mark for the delivery of our 3 Day Restorative Justice Training Course.

“This award demonstrates that we are delivering high quality training to our Police Officers and external partners and also provides recognition that our course meets the high standards outlined by the Restorative Justice Council.”
