One request is being published this month which assesses the effectiveness of the Community Justice Court (CJC) operating at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court. The CJC targets offenders who have committed low risk offences and who plead guilty on the day of their first appearance in court for that offence. This analysis relates to individuals who took part in a problem solving meeting before sentencing in the CJC at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court during 2010. This analysis indicates that there is currently insufficient evidence at this stage to draw a conclusion about the impact of those individuals on reoffending.
Update on the Justice Data Lab service
The Justice Data Lab team have now started bringing the 2012 reoffending data into the service. It is now possible for an organisation to submit information on the individuals it was working with during 2012, in addition to during the years 2002 to 2011.
The bulletin is produced and handled by Ministry of Justice (MOJ) analytical professionals and production staff. Pre-release access of up to 24 hours is granted to the following persons: MOJ Secretary of State, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Permanent Secretary, Director of Sentencing and Rehabilitation Policy unit, relevant policy advisers for reducing reoffending and women’s policy (3 persons in total), Policy advisors for the Transforming Rehabilitation Programme, and relevant Press Officers and special advisers.
