Joint review of diversion from prosecution – Terms of Reference

30 March 2022

HM Inspectorate of Constabulary in Scotland have committed to working in partnership with other scrutiny bodies on a joint review of diversion from prosecution. The aim will be to assess the operation and impact of diversion from prosecution in Scotland. We will provide an overview of diversion practice from a policing, prosecution and justice social work perspective, highlight what is working well and explore any barriers to the more effective use of diversion. The review will be carried out in collaboration with HM Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland, the Care Inspectorate and HM Inspectorate of Prisons for Scotland.
