Offenders are living in and returning to our community at all times. A professional who has the ability to engage positively, understand the offenders motivating factors and their triggers for offending makes a real difference, both to the offender and the community.
We all have a duty to keep our local communities safe. This includes responding to vulnerable people in need of assistance at whatever point they are within the criminal justice system. This is important in terms of ensuring access to health services and enabling criminal justice agencies to carry out their work effectively and in a timely manner. However, is also very important when communicating and engaging with offenders that workers remain safe. They must remain professional and objective and strive for a balance between working with facts without prejudice.
Working with perpetrators to help them move away from offending can be challenging. This course ensures that delegates leave with a good understanding of motivations, triggers, how to keep themselves safe and how to navigate the Criminal Justice System.
