41[F1community rehabilitation orders].E+W

(1)Where a person aged 16 or over is convicted of an offence and the court by or before which he is convicted is of the opinion that his supervision is desirable in the interests of—

(3)A [F1community rehabilitation order] shall specify the petty sessions area in which the offender resides or will reside.

(4)If the offender is aged 18 or over at the time when the [F1community rehabilitation order] is made, he shall, subject to paragraph 18 of Schedule 3 to this Act (offender’s change of area), be required to be under the supervision of [F3an officer of a local probation board] appointed for or assigned to the petty sessions area specified in the order.

(a)[F3an officer of a local probation board] appointed for or assigned to the petty sessions area specified in the order; or

(b)a member of a youth offending team established by a local authority specified in the order;

and if an order specifies a local authority for the purposes of paragraph (b) above, the authority specified must be the local authority within whose area it appears to the court that the offender resides or will reside.

(7)Before making a [F1community rehabilitation order], the court shall explain to the offender in ordinary language—

(a)the effect of the order (including any additional requirements proposed to be included in the order in accordance with section 42 below);

(b)the consequences which may follow (under Part II of Schedule 3 to this Act) if he fails to comply with any of the requirements of the order; and

(c)that the court has power (under Parts III and IV of that Schedule) to review the order on the application either of the offender or of the responsible officer.

(8)On making a [F1community rehabilitation order], the court may, if it thinks it expedient for the purpose of the offender’s reformation, allow any person who consents to do so to give security for the good behaviour of the offender.
