Key findings this month
One request is being published this month. The request is for Norfolk and Suffolk’s 180⁰ scheme, which identifies those at high risk of reoffending and, along with partner agencies, aims to help each offender address the issues underlying their offending. The scheme is run by Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary and Probation services and their partners. The overall results show that those who took part in the scheme were more likely to reoffend and had a higher frequency of re-offences than those who did not. However, more people would need to become eligible for analysis in order to determine the direction in which the intervention affects the time to re-offence among participants, but this should not be taken to mean that the programme fails to affect it
