If you were the victim of a low level crime and wanted to pick a punishment, what would you choose?

Thats the question that Norfolk's Police and Crime Commisioner is asking West Norfolk.

Stephen Bett says he wants victims to feel like they have got justice, and offenders to realise the damage they've done and not repeat their crimes in future.

"The court process is very expensive and we feel the victims should have a stronger voice. It's to give them the chance to say 'Ok, you've apologised now I want you to repair this damage' and it's a bit like restorative justice."
