Welcome to STARR

In the European probation sector there is a great demand for knowledge of best practices. However, to date there is no unified view of how best practices in community justice settings can be transferred from one jurisdiction, and be implemented in another. In order to offer an EU-wide view and to inform and develop models of best practice and good practice implementation, the National Offender Management Service for England and Wales (NOMS, UK) has developed the project  Strengthening Transnational Approaches to Reducing Re-offending, or STARR. London Probation Trust, which co-developed STARR, is the lead partner of the project.

Financed by the EU funding programme ISEC and started in December 2008, the STARR project is developing evidence-based processes for identifying and sharing best practice, and is initially  focused on three priority areas: youth crime, drug & alcohol related crime and domestic violence.
