The below table provides a breakdown of the number of hours on the Community Payback caseload by Probation region as of 27/06/22.

It outlines the number of hours handed down by the courts (including recently sentenced hours) which still need to be worked.

This Government is committed to ensuring that offenders work all of their sentenced hours, subject to judicial decision.

We are boosting the number of hours offenders spend doing tough Community Payback, such as cleaning up public places, by nearly two thirds – from five million to eight million hours a year.

Data as at 27/06/2022. It is worth noting that some recording of hours sentenced or worked takes place retrospectively and therefore won't be included in this data.

Data is sourced from nDelius and while this data has been assured as much as practical, as with any large administrative dataset, the data should not be assumed to be accurate to the last value presented.

Cases held in an 'Other' Delivery Unit include cases held by a Region-wide Community Payback function, cases held in the region's enforcement function, or cases pending allocation to a Probation Delivery Unit.
