Chapter 9
Proposal for reform

Pilot programme

9.208We recommend that the alternative process is first implemented as a pilot, perhaps in Auckland where there is a concentration of population and already some history of using alternative processes with sexual violence (the three main providers of pre-sentence restorative justice programmes in respect of sexual violence are in the north of the North Island).664  The pilot should be monitored and evaluated and necessary changes made to the alternative process before it is rolled out any further.
