Do you want to have a say on Community Payback punishments?
Community Payback is a punishment handed out by the courts as part of a community sentence. Offenders are made to carry out unpaid work such as removing graffiti, bringing derelict areas and buildings back into public use, clearing church yards, and unused allotments, repairing park benches and playground equipment.
Offenders must wear bright orange high-visibility jackets, marked 'Community Payback' while they're working. The jackets mean you can see that they're paying back for their crimes.
Community Payback is often used in conjunction with tagging, offender behaviour programmes and rehabilitation services; these community sentences can deliver robust punishments and useful services for society.
