First Anniversary Alcohol Court Glasgow

The Glasgow Sheriff Court Alcohol Court marked its first anniversary earlier this week. It is the latest “problem-solving court” established in Glasgow following the creation of the successful Drug Court in 2001.

It deals with those whose offending is significantly contributed to by alcohol, and was launched as a pilot in February last year, becoming a permanent fixture in the Glasgow court programme within six months.

According to the Judiciary of Scotland website, “In the first 12 months, a total of 128 offenders have been referred to the Court. To date, 61% of those referred to the Court have been made the subject of an Alcohol Court order, together with the rigorous monitoring that accompanies them. A total of 51 Community Payback Orders and 27 Structured Deferred Sentences were imposed in the first year. Only three of the orders made have been revoked for non-compliance.”
