National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme
January 15th, 2015
For the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner (“the Commissioner”), acting as the legal entity of Cambridgeshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, to become a member of The Road Safety Trust for the purposes of Cambridgeshire Constabulary (“the Constabulary”) joining the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (“the Scheme”).
The Scheme provides a mechanism through which police forces across the UK can make a discretionary offer to offenders who commit some road traffic offences. This offer is to undertake retraining as an alternative to receiving a fine and/or points on their licence.
UK ROEd Ltd, a not-for-profit private company, will be created to administer the Scheme on behalf of the charity The Road Safety Trust. Police forces, through their Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners, become a member of The Road Safety Trust.
The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners provided information to the Commissioner regarding the Scheme to enable the Commissioner and the Chief Constable of the Constabulary to discuss the Scheme at the Business Coordination Board meeting on the 8th January 2015. The minutes of that meeting will be published once approved.
The Commissioner has decided to become a member of The Road Safety Trust thereby enabling the Constabulary to benefit from the Scheme.
The Commissioner, in the capacity of the legal entity of the Cambridgeshire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, signed the application form for membership of The Road Safety Trust on the 13th January 2015, a copy of which can be found as an attachment below.
