South Yorkshire Probation Trust works closely with Her Majesty's
Courts Service, the judiciary, and magistrates' representatives on
a joint communications strategy to keep sentencers informed about
our work. The Sentencer Communications Group, made up of
representatives of South Yorkshire Probation Trust, serving
magistrates and Her Majesty's Courts Service, meets regularly to
Magistrates' Bus Tours
Each year we hold a number of all day tours for magistrates to
give them more information about the work of South Yorkshire
Probation Trust and the sentencing options available to reduce
re-offending. The day includes talks with probation officers,
visits to Community Payback projects, a tour of our Accredited
Programmes Division and a visit to an Approved Premises.
The tours are open to all serving magistrates, particularly those
who are new to the Bench. For more information contact your South
Yorkshire Probation Trust court team manager.
