The RJC is pleased to announce that North Wales Police has been awarded the Restorative Service Quality Mark (RSQM).

“I would like to congratulate North Wales Police for successfully completing the RSQM. This achievement is proof of its commitment to offering the highest standards of restorative justice.”

The RSQM is a badge of quality that guarantees that a service provides safe, high quality restorative practice which meets the six Restorative Service Standards. North Wales Police joins other RSQM awardees – in sectors ranging from criminal justice through education to care – delivering high quality restorative processes.

Elaine Roberts, Restorative Justice Development Officer, North Wales Police, said:

“I was immensely proud and felt a huge sense of achievement both for North Wales Police and on a personal level when we achieved the RSQM.

“Although North Wales Police already had procedures in place to ensure the safety and quality of restorative justice, completing the RSQM gave us the opportunity to consider what could to be updated and strengthened. We can also now to display to the public that our processes has been subjected to the scrutiny of an independent body.

“We were supported every step of the way both by the RJC and the external assessor and I would encourage any other organisations considering the RSQM to go for it!”
