The primary aim of Community Justice Services is to help offenders address their offending behaviour and thus reduce the risk of re-offending. It provides the following services:
- Writing reports and providing assessments to help Sheriffs and Justices of the Peace to make sentencing decisions
- Supervising people placed on statutory orders, including Community Payback Orders, Drug Treatment Testing Orders, and Post Custody Supervision
- Providing a range of Unpaid Work Placements, for those sentenced to Unpaid Work
- Supervision of High Risk Offenders as part of Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA)
- A Women’s Team delivering a service for women who have committed offenses
- A Tayside-wide service for Registered Sex Offenders delivering programme work
- Staff who offer throughcare on a voluntary basis to those leaving prison after shorter sentences
- A service co-located with health staff, police (offender management unit) and voluntary sector.
As part of Dundee City Council, Community Justice Services is a partner within the Dundee Community Justice Partnership, which seeks to tackle the causes of offending and reoffending.
