Put paid to young offending
Make Justice Work in Metro UK Letters.
“In response to the report that prison costs six times more than Eton (Metro, Mon) – the increasing number of short-term sentences being handed down for low-level offences is one of the biggest contributors to our prison population. Resources should be diverted into developing the existing alternatives to custody that are proven to address the root causes of offending behaviour. This would not only help to reduce reoffending and costs, it would also free up prison places for those serious offenders who should be there.”
