Community payback order and drug treatment and testing orders

The court can impose one or more of the following requirements:

  • Supervision
  • Unpaid work or other activity
  • Compensation
  • Programme
  • Residence
  • Mental health treatment
  • Drug treatment
  • Alcohol treatment
  • Conduct

Unpaid work

Unpaid work takes place in local communities and is for the benefit of the community. It must not take away paid employment from others.

It is important that people can suggest work that they feel would be of benefit to their community. To make a suggestion contact our justice services team online.

Drug treatment and testing orders

You may be suitable for a drug treatment and testing order (DTTO) if you are at risk of custody due to serious or frequent offending because of being dependent on drugs.
