Third National Commission of Enquiry

Third National Commission of Enquiry

Last Tuesday we took our ‘Community or Custody’ panel of experts to visit the Leicester Drugs and Alcohol community sentence which is run by the Criminal Justice Drugs Team.  It is an excellent scheme providing a whole range of services to both men and women who have so far slipped through the criminal justice net.  As is so often the case, it is the offenders and staff on the ground who really tell the story.  Lives have been turned round, offending behaviour reduced and, critically, so many have gained a real insight into what their crimes have meant to their victims.  We had a fantastic and engaging audience.  For more information on the Criminal Justice Drugs Team please visit their website and, visit the Community or Custody website to read the evidence heard by the panel.
