Community Sentences have a better track record in reducing reoffending

When someone offends the penalty should be proportionate the public should be protected and  the offender should offer restitution. It is in society’s own interest that the offender should not offend again. It is also in the interests of the offender.

Community sentences are less demanding on the public purse than prison and have a better track record in reducing re-offending.
