Here is this suggestion to the Forum as the B A is short of Funds or shall I say miss use of it of keeping the Area of the Norfolk Clean i.e. Foot Paths and  open spaces and Rivers is there a Community Service for theses People whom have fallen fowl of the Law as i think this would be a way of there way of repaying there way back into the society as punishment what ever that my be?(But not for Murders/Pedophiles and Bank Robbers)as this would save the Paying Tax Payers a lot of money on this and the cost of them going to Jail plus helping B A out of a hole they have been getting themselves into so what does the Forum think of this idea?
Andrew.

most local authorities are trying to dissuade magistrates from issuing community service orders as they say that the cost of operating the program outweighs the benefits. Suspended jail sentances are much cheaper.

A huge amount of just the type of work your talking about used to be done by community service, but now goes undone.

Elf and safety springs to mind, idiots and water do not mix well!
Although I would have them out working their fingers to the bone. But do not forget offenders have more rights than us these days, they cannot be identified, belittled in any way, or made to do anything they do not wish to.
Bring back the town stocks!!!
