Prosecutions and alternative disposals
This is a general guide to the range of interventions available to those agencies responsible for the enforcement of heritage crime. It looks in general terms at possible interventions from prosecution through to the many types of alternative disposal options, both formal and voluntary, including consideration of the restorative justice process.
This guide is part of a suite of guides to help people reduce the threat of crime to England's historic buildings and sites. For more background on the general nature of heritage crime and national and local strategies for tackling it please see the heritage crime web pages.
