Community Justice

 Community Justice

The Reducing Offending and Reoffending (ROAR) partnership group brings together statutory and non statutory partners from across Fife with the collaborative aim of working together to reduce offending and reoffending.  The work of the ROAR partnership group is supported by staff within the Safer Communities Team. 

The Scottish Government defines community justice as “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, promote desistance, social inclusion, and citizenship”

Community Justice Outcome Improvement Plan

The Community Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 placed a requirement on each Local Authority to produce a plan which outlines the actions they intend to take to reduce offending – known as Community Justice Outcome Improvement Plan (CJOIP).  The Fife CJOIP can be viewed by clicking on the Fife CJOIP publication below.
