Restorative Justice for Briercliffe

Restorative Justice for Briercliffe

Enforce restorative justice on the person responsible for a recent arson attack on a newly funded woodland walk viewing platform.

Why is this important?

As a result of an arson attack on a recently built viewing platform in the parish, we expect as a community that the Police ensure the public is informed, and the person is made to apologise for their actions, the parents are made to foot a part or all the bill for the rebuilding, and they are made to assist in the rebuilding.

For too long Briercliffe residents have felt insecure in their own community, after dark we see lots of youth from outside the area targeting local business properties, and now public facilities in our own home.

The public perception is that the Police simply do not want to deal with this, and despite assurances, we know from media coverage that Lancashire Constabulary are among the worst in the country for filtering calls and crimes.

We don't consider this an unreasonable request, and we expect to be safe in our own community.

How it will be delivered

Once we have enough signatures we will send the printed petition via Royal Mail Signed For, to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, at Preston County Hall.

Reasons for signing

  • To ensure that justice is done and lessons are learnt.
  • Because I lived there for 30 years and incidents like this are on the increase and the culprit should be made an examplw of and their parents need to pay.
