Section 56: Reprimands and warnings
129.Section 56 removes the current requirement that a reprimand or warning may only be given in a police station. This will give the police flexibility to arrange for restorative conferences in more suitable locations such as the offices of the youth offending team responsible for assessing the young offender and providing the intervention programme. This Section also gives the police an explicit power to bail pending delivery of reprimands and final warnings. This will enable the police to deliver reprimands and final warning at restorative conferences involving parents and, where appropriate, victims.
