Community Mediation
Community Mediation is a way for individuals to resolve their disputes together with the police and to gain mutual understanding of the situation. The citizen and police officer, with the assistance of a neutral mediator, identify issues for discussion and explore possible resolutions. Both the citizen and the police officer must agree to mediation. The mediation process requires open and honest communication in order to succeed. If your complaint is suitable and is accepted for mediation, no further investigation will take place into the incident and no discipline will be imposed against the officer or officers involved. The mediator may write out a summary or agreement at the end of the mediation to confirm what the parties agreed to.
