Adult Conditional Cautioning Procedure
Conditional Cautioning is a disposal intended to divert from court those lower level cases that it would normally be in the public interest to prosecute, but where an Officer feels that a more effective outcome could be achieved for the victim, offender or both by the imposition of conditions as part of a caution.
North Yorkshire Criminal Justice Area is approved by the Director of Public Prosecutions to utilise Conditional Caution.
North Yorkshire Police (NYP) will implement the Conditional Cautioning scheme in accordance with the ‘Directors Guidance’ and the Ministry of Justice Code of Practice for Adult Conditional Cautions.
Indictable only offences must be referred to the CPS for authority, summary and either way offences are a decision for the Police.Last modified: February 2, 2021 [application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document]
