Reoffending rates in Haringey lower than expected, London Probation Trust figures show

Haringey Independent: The London Probation Trust figures showed reoffending rates were lower than expected in the borough The London Probation Trust figures showed reoffending rates were lower than expected in the borough

The rate of reoffending among criminals in Haringey has been 16 per cent lower than expected over the past four years, new probation figures show.

The London Probation Trust predicted that eight per cent of offenders would reoffend within three months of their crime, but fewer than seven per cent actually did.

The annual figures, published this week, analyse the number of offenders over the age of 18 on probation at the end of a particular quarter and compare it with the previous four years.

Haringey was one of ten London boroughs where reoffending rates were lower than expected.

London-wide there were 8 per cent fewer reoffenders than had originally been predicted four years ago.

Andrew Blight, assistant chief officer for Haringey at the London Probation Trust, said:  “This shows that probation is delivering results when it comes to deterring offenders from repeating past mistakes.

“Unfortunately there will always be a small section of the community that will commit crime, but in the majority of cases where we do intervene, we are able to help offenders make better choices.”

You got the 3 political partys to choose from in this country, so just vote for any of the recognised 3 and the rest of the others just close them down one and for all.
