Offenders working in their communities after being sentenced for offences have contributed tens of thousands of hours across the Humberside Force area.

Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company, which is responsible for supervising offenders on Community Payback and ensuring they comply with their sentence, delivered 30,548 hours in the first quarter of 2018.

Martin Davies, chief executive of HLNY CRC, said: “Community payback provides a tough, effective and visible punishment requiring people to undertake challenging work while giving something back to communities where they live.

“The community payback team would like to hear about other projects which residents think will make a real difference to their community. Visit www.hlnycrc.co.uk to nominate a project.”
