Criminal Justice Services

Criminal Justice Social Work provides  the following services :

  • writing reports to help Sheriffs and Justices of the Peace (JPs) make sentencing decisions;
  • supervising offenders placed on Community Payback orders, Drug Treatment and Testing Orders (DTTO's) and post custody supervision e.g. parole;
  • a supported accommodation unit for offenders who require extra levels of supervision in order to successfully complete their orders in the community;
  • supervision of offenders as part of Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements(MAPPA).

The primary aim of the service is to help offenders address their offending behaviour and thus reduce the risk of re-offending.
