Youth offending service

The purpose of the youth offending service is to:

  • prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime
  • identify and deal with young people who commit crimes
  • reduce re-offending

The partnership is made up of:

  • children’s services
  • Lincolnshire Police
  • NHS services in Lincolnshire
  • Lincolnshire Probation Trust
  • HM Courts and Tribunals Service
  • Crown Prosecution Service

We also work closely with other partners, such as:

  • East Midlands Criminal Justice Board

  • Community Safety Partnerships
  • Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements
  • Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children’s Board
