Voters select offender punishment

PUBLISHED February 22, 2005

Residents in parts of the South have been voting for areas they want to see cleaned up by offenders doing community service punishment.

A free "clean up" hotline, set up by the National Probation Service (NPS), allows callers to select from 10 areas in Southampton, Poole and Bournemouth.
In a recent survey, 85% of the public said they would like a say in the work carried out by offenders, the NPS says.
