After local research had shown that house burglary
attracted the highest rate of custodial sentences,
Plymouth probation officers David Nation and John
Arnott developed a group programme designed to offer a
credible non-custodial option and to change offending
behaviour through encounters with victims and
prisoners, plus reparation and crime prevention tasks.
They evaluate their first four completed programmes.
