Helping to cut crime

Have your say

OFFENDERS say community orders help cut their crime.

A total of 78 per cent of offenders across the North East said their time on probation had made them less likely to offend.

Also, 63 per cent said they were more confident because of the training and support they received, with Northumbria Probation Trust.

Head of performance Barry Taylor said: “Probation staff work with offenders throughout their sentence, and are able to get to the route of their offending behaviour.”
