The Conservative candidate to oversee policing in Bedfordshire has welcomed a shake-up of community sentencing by the government.

Jas Parmar is the Tory nominee for the role of Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner which will be elected next month to oversee policing across the county.

He welcomed the Community Remedy scheme, which he said would offer victims of anti-social behaviour and low-level crime the right to choose a Community Payback punishment for the perpetrator of their crime. Police and Crime Commissioners will provide a menu of punishment options so that the victim of crime can choose an appropriate punishment.
