What is Community Justice?
"Community justice is where people who have broken the law are held to account and supported to reconnect and contribute to their communities.
Where it is safe to do so, people who commit certain crimes receive community-based sentences. This can include treatment for underlying issues such as drug or alcohol addiction, unpaid work, fines and compensation or restrictions of liberty such as electronic tagging and curfews.
The evidence shows community justice can help people stop breaking the law again leading to fewer victims and safer communities." Community Justice Scotland
