The Criminal Justice Act (1998) brought about significant changes to the Youth Justice System. It aimed to ‘nip offending in the bud’ by addressing the offending behaviour in order to prevent reoffending. Youth Offending Teams were to be established and new Orders were to be followed.

This book is based on five of those Orders, the Action Plan Order, the Child Safety Order, the Parenting Order, the Reparation Order and the Final Warning and the Young Offending Teams who were to administer the procedures.

It looks at the pilot studies of the Youth Offending Teams and Reparation Providers and analyses the results to see which Statutory Order is proving to be more effective than another and, if the creation of the Youth Offending Team (YOTs) and Reparation Providers (RP’s), brought about any significant problems that could affect the delivery or service of the government proposals. The book tries to answer these questions and others including:

Was the government legislation under the Criminal Justice Act (1998) necessary?

Will it stop youths reoffending?

Can the Youth Offending Teams effectively deliver the new procedures whilst working under the same roof?

This book covers government legislation on crime, past and present, details of the pilot studies and the data extracted, the youth verses justice debate, a summary of the Orders, multi-agency partnerships and results of the data along with the conclusion.

The book is a valuable source of information for those who work within the Criminal Justice System and students who hope to enter into the system.
