The Ministry of Justice is currently finalising its consultation on plans to publish a range of reoffending related analyses that are not currently published. The consultation will be issued as soon as possible.

Due to concerns over the alleged inconsistent use of PNDs by the police the Justice Secretary has recently announced a review of the use of out-of-court disposals. The review will examine evidence on the use and enforcement of out-of-court disposals including PNDs and will report back to Parliament in due course.
