Free talk on crime and sen­tenc­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

THE pro­ba­tion ser­vice is invit­ing com­mu­nity groups in and around Peter­bor­ough to sign up for free talks on crime and sen­tenc­ing.

The Cam­bridgeshire and Peter­bor­ough Pro­ba­tion Trust is of­fer­ing the in­ter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tions as part of a na­tional scheme which aims to give the public in­sight into the jus­tice sys­tem.

It is given by a lo­cal mag­is­trate and pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer and ex­plains the court process, the prepa­ra­tion of pro­ba­tion re­ports and sen­tenc­ing ra­tio­nale.

Groups are taken through a case study of a fic­tional crime.

Mem­bers are pro­vided with in­for­ma­tion on the of­fence, along with de­tails of how it was re­ported in the me­dia and the of­fender’s per­sonal cir­cum­stances.

Based on the ev­i­dence pro­vided, the group is then asked to de­ter­mine the sen­tence.

The pre­sen­ta­tion lasts about an hour and can be de­liv­ered at any time.

Groups do not need to pro­vide any equip­ment.

For more in­for­ma­tion visit the trust’s web­site at www.cam­bridgeshirepro­ba­tion.org.uk where a pre­sen­ta­tion re­quest form is avail­able to com­plete or call on 03000 477 000.
