Community Payback Orders – Crime.Scot

CPOs are court orders that impose one or more “requirements” on offenders. In imposing a CPO, the court effectively hands over responsibility for enforcement onto the offender’s local social work department. In particular, a nominated “responsible officer” is responsible for “promoting compliance” with the requirements of the order, and is the offender’s point of contact for (e.g.) notifying them of a change of address. Prior to imposing a CPO, the court must – unless it is imposing a level one unpaid work order (see 3. below) or imposing a CPO due to default on a fine – obtain and consider a Criminal Justice Social Work Report on the offender. The offender must confirm that they understand, and are willing to comply with the order. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Criminal Justice Social Work Reports (CJSWRs)
