Revolving Doors Agency launches a new paper showing the problems with short sentences.
Short sentences are short sighted
The public and the evidence are clear and in agreement: Short prison sentences are ineffective at tackling petty crime. We can do better and should adopt a smarter approach.
In March 2018 we launched our campaign that showed short sentences are short-sighted. We asked the government to review this issue and to consider introducing a new presumption against the use of short custodial sentences of less than six months. Since then we have had real impact. The Government has committed to explore options to restrict the use of short custodial sentences.
