Fitting the Crime: Reforming community sentences

Nov 25, 2010

Fitting the Crime: Reforming Community Sentences exposes how community sentences are failing to properly penalise or deter offenders and do not command public trust.  The study describes current community sentences – with their high breach rates and lack of focus on punishment – as “the weak link in the sentencing chain”. The report features key recommendations designed to build public confidence and ensure that community sentences are effective, with punishments that both fit the crime and help to arrest the escalation of offending.
