    Abstract

    Community Payback Orders (CPOs) were set up by the Scottish Government in 2011 under the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act. The court can impose one or more of nine requirements as part of a CPO. The most frequently used is the Unpaid Work or Other Activity (UPWOA) (Scottish Government, 2018). For young people aged under 18, an UPWOA requirement would be imposed in conjunction with a Supervision Requirement and an UPWOA requirement can only be made where the individual is aged 16 or above (Scottish Government, 2010).
