Section 26: Monitoring of performance in relation to community justice outcomes

44.Section 26 requires Community Justice Scotland to monitor performance in the achievement of outcomes in each local authority area, using the relevant indicators. Community Justice Scotland must also from time to time report to the community justice partners for the area of each local authority on its assessment of their performance. Community Justice Scotland may direct community justice partners to publish the report, or information within it. Community justice partners must also, within a specified timescale, comply with a direction to inform Community Justice Scotland of the actions the partners have taken or plan to take, in order to respond to the report. Where they do not intend to take action in response to the report, they must notify Community Justice Scotland of that fact.
