In contrast to traditional cautions, restorative cautioning aims to encourage the offender to take
responsibility for repairing the harm caused by their offence. A restorative caution is a meeting
facilitated by a trained police off i c e r, based around a stru c t u red dialogue about the off e n c e
and its implications (with active involvement from the offender and the victim, if present). The
re s e a rch examined whether restorative cautioning had an impact on resanctioning rates. This
was explored by examining the policy of restorative cautioning (by comparing all cautions in
Thames Valley with traditional cautions in Sussex and Wa rw i c k s h i re) and the practice of
restorative cautioning (by comparing restorative conferences, restorative cautions and
traditional cautions within Thames Valley). The term resanctioning is used, as this includes
cautions, final warnings and reprimands, as well as convictions.
