This document provides an updated set of guidelines which supersedes previous guidance and should be used by all agencies involved in diversion from prosecution as an alternative to prosecutorial action. The process of revision was facilitated by Community Justice Scotland who worked closely with partners, including Social Work Scotland, Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, Scottish Government, Police Scotland and the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice. Not only does this represent the culmination of a period of effective partnership working, this also demonstrates a high level of co-production and shared ownership of the process and acknowledgement of the benefits diversion from prosecution can bring to people, families and communities.
