File # 23-2001
On January 31st, 2023, North Vancouver RCMP received a report of mischief at a residence in the 3000 block of Griffin Pl, North Vancouver. The homeowner reported that someone had spray painted racist remarks on their garage door. The victim believed the suspects involved may have been youth from the same neighborhood.
Patrol officers and the Youth Support Team worked diligently to identify the suspects, all three of whom are youths. The youths have cooperated with the investigation and have taken responsibility for their actions.
While the investigation continues, the Youth Support Unit is taking steps to work with the youths and their families in partnership with the North Shore Restorative Justice Society, said Cst. Mansoor Sahak of the North Vancouver RCMP.
That follow up has already begun, said Cst. Sahak, emphasising that once issues of ongoing public safety have been resolved through de-escalation, the focus is to use principles of dialogue to foster reparation and healing.
North Shore Restorative Justice Society is a non-profit, charitable organization that aims to address the impacts of crime and conflict through processes that seek to meet the needs of the victims, and their communities. Based on the values of accountability and respect, the restorative justice process provides youth and others with an alternative to the Criminal Court.
