In this clip Sarah MacQueen, from the University of Edinburgh, talks about a report she co-authored with Ben Bradford about Diversion from Prosecution. This report was commissioned by the Scottish Government (the SG) as a result of concerns about the decrease in the numbers of cases being diverted from prosecution. To investigate these issues further Sarah and Ben conducted a small-scale research study on the use of social work related diversion schemes by Procurators Fiscal in three Community Justice Authorties in Scotland. This report can be accessed at sccjr.ac.uk/pubs/Diversion-from-Prosecution-to-Social-Work-in-Scotland/298.
