New Zealand Police Pre-Charge Warnings: Alternative Resolutions evaluation report
This is the final evaluation report of the Pre-Charge Warning: Alternative Resolutions initiative. The initiative is part of the Policing Excellence workstream and responds to calls from New Zealand Police (Police), the Law Commission and judiciary to develop better alternatives to hold offenders to account for less serious offending without having to use the courts.
The findings in this report cover Police charge data from regional implementation in November 2009 to the end of May 2010. Data is also drawn from observations, interviews and surveys of police staff, offenders and victims.
