Community Justice

Community Justice

Community justice is about letting some people, when safe to do so, serve their sentence in the community. By keeping people in the community and not isolated from society, they learn, they integrate, and they contribute.

Understand Community Justice

Our Role

At Community Justice Scotland we help prevent crime by addressing the inequalities in society. We use evidence to determine what works best for Scotland’s justice system and the people in it. Together with our partners, we are responsible for promoting Scotland’s national strategy for community justice.
