(2014), Implementation of Community Orders Results from the Offender Manager Community Cohort Study, MoJ, as reported in Where did it all go wrong? (Crest Advisory, 2017) “This particular cohort study conducted by the MoJ in 2014 found that a fifth of the offenders studied were still waiting for part of their CO to commence four months after their sentence had begun (i.e. a part of a requirement or a full requirement). Lack of availability or administrative issues were cited as causes of delays; a quarter were waiting for a place to become available and just under a fifth (17 per cent) were waiting for an element to be organised… “Given the fundamental importance of swiftness and certainty in the effectiveness of sanctions, it is not difficult to see why delays like this undermine confidence in community sentences. Indeed in our interviews for this report we were told of cases where an offender can be back in front of the court after a breach, before the original sentence has even begun.”

The 2016 CVS also included new questions for respondents who said the most commonly stolen items in shoplifting incidents were food or grocery items. Respondents were asked whether the food or groceries typically stolen were high value luxury items (e.g. expensive cuts of meat), lower value day-to-day items (such as bread or milk) or a combination of these. Responses shows that the majority of premises (71% for all incidents and 80% for the most recent incident) typically had low value goods stolen in shoplifting incidents involving food and grocery items.
