answer text <p>We outlined in our <em>Strengthening Probation, Building Confidence </em>consultation, that we wanted probation to work more closely with local partners, such as local authorities, and strengthen the role of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) in the future system.</p><p> </p><p>We have been working jointly with the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) and representatives from different PCC offices to refine our thinking specifically around the role of PCCs and their relationship with probation services in England. We want this to support greater local transparency of probation performance, greater alignment of priorities and more opportunities for co-commissioning of rehabilitative services.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS Wales are building on their positive partnership with the four PCCs in Wales around priority areas such as the Dyfodol Offender Interventions service and the Women’s Pathfinder initiative, to explore potential options around the co-commissioning of services as part of the current proposals for Wales.</p>

answer text <p>The number of offenders sentenced to up to six months who had not received a previous community sentence by court type can be viewed in the table.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We recognise that shoplifting is not a victimless crime. It causes cost and disruption to businesses, as well as damage to communities and consumers. We encourage all victims, including shop workers, to report these crimes to the police so that they can be recorded and dealt with accordingly.</p><p> </p><p>A report by the Centre for Social Justice issued last year concluded that people addicted to heroin and crack cocaine account for 70% of shop thefts. We are committed to ensuring the most vulnerable offenders, including those with drug addictions, are able to access support at the right time. This includes diverting offenders away from custody where appropriate.</p><p> </p><p>Out of Court Disposals are one important tool available in addressing shop theft – they allow the police to deal quickly and proportionately with low-level offending. Where an Out of Court Disposal is appropriate, we encourage the use of disposals which have a condition attached (be that rehabilitative, reparative, punitive or restrictive). This can achieve rapid compensation and/or divert vulnerable offenders with substance misuse or mental health issues into rehabilitative services to address the root causes of their offending behaviour.</p><p> </p><p>We pay attention to trends and changes in the use of Out of Court Disposals on an ongoing basis.</p>
