Research identifying the lessons learnt from the implementation of the unpaid reparative work conditional caution pilot.
by Linda Rice
A pilot testing the implementation of the unpaid reparative work conditional caution (RWC), a type of out-of-court disposal, took place between December 2006 and September 2007.
The purpose of the RWC was to enable offenders to make good any damage they had caused by carrying out up to 20 hours of specified work.
The report describes the research that was carried out to explore the reasons for the low take-up of the RWC and to identify the lessons learnt from the pilot implementation process.
