EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Crime and Disorder (Formulation and Implementation of Strategy) Regulations 2007 to take into account the requirement for responsible authorities to formulate and implement a strategy to reduce re-offending inserted into the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (the “1998 Act”) by section 108 of the Policing and Crime Act 2009 (the “2009 Act”). The changes made by these Regulations also reflect the fact that every provider of probation services operating within an area in pursuance of arrangements under section 3 of the Offender Management Act 2007 which provide for it to be a responsible authority under section 5 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 will be a responsible authority as from 1st April 2010 when section 108 of the 2009 Act comes into force.
