Community sentencing is a vital part of our justice system, yet never attracts the headlines it deserves. The only time the public ever hear about community sentences is when things go wrong. "Young man does unpaid work in community and a course in anger management, and goes on to live law-abiding life" is not a news story. "Young man does unpaid work in community, absconds with van and robs bank" is. Yet the vast majority of the 190,000-plus community sentences handed down each year are successful. Reoffending by those on community sentences has declined 13 per cent over the last five years. That means thousands of potential victims of crime have been spared.
