Pilot Drug Courts were introduced in October 2001 in Glasgow and in August
2002 in Fife. Following broadly positive evaluations of the pilot schemes in 2006
Scottish Ministers agreed to continue funding the Drug Courts for a further 3 years
until Spring 2009. The purpose of this review is to assess the impact and
effectiveness of the two Drug Courts, including cost effectiveness, in light of the
impact of the summary justice reforms. This will inform future policy and funding
regarding Drug Courts. (excerpt)
