To ensure further funding I'd have thought they'd be falling over themselves to provide stats demonstrating success or failure. Something tangible at least which can be fed back in to sentencing guidelines. PERSEC shouldn't feature in stats.And despite all that effort , academic participation, cost, it has failed.
Spectacularly , and bitten on the hand by whom it was feeding.
I understand the need for PERSEC but names are not really needed.
If there is a policy, and therefore a program of rehabilitation, it must be able to prove its success rate in numbers and percentages.
And the organisation that does it should be accountable for their decisions.
