Community Justice is the collection of individuals, agencies and services that work together to support, manage and supervise people who have committed offences, from the point of arrest, through prosecution, community disposal or custody and alternatives to these, until they are reintegrated into the community.
Local communities and the third sector are a vital part of this process which aims to prevent and reduce further offending and the harm that it causes, to promote desistance, social inclusion and citizenship.
The Community Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 shifts responsibility for community justice from Community Justice Authorities to local community planning structures.
