Community justice

The Reducing Offending and Re-offending (ROAR) partnership group brings together statutory and non-statutory partners from across Fife with the aim of working together to reduce offending and re-offending. The work of the partnership group is supported by staff within Fife Council's 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.'
