Emergency services in Nottinghamshire are joining forces today to show off their skills at a special open day.

This is an ideal opportunity for people not only to see how the county's emergency services work but also for victims of crime to have a say on punishment for some offences. We will be asking people, as part of our continuing consultation, how they would like our police force and criminal justice agencies to deal with low-level crime and isolated incidents of anti-social behaviour.

One of the main driving forces behind community remedies is the opportunity it provides to rehabilitate offenders, make them more accountable to their victims and less likely to reoffend in the future.
