Abstract In 1997, The Scottish Office provided 100 per cent funding for 18 pilot schemes that enabled Procurators Fiscal to divert accused charged with minor offences from prosecution to social work and other service agencies. The pilot schemes were monitored and this study was commissioned to evaluate their first 18 months of operation.
