Penalty Notices For Disorder

‘I Didn’t do Anything!’ – Penalty Notices for Disorder: Exploring the Recipients’ Perceptions

Sara Grace, from the University of Sheffield, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Crime and Society,” under the title “‘I Didn’t do Anything!’ – Penalty Notices for Disorder: Exploring the Recipients’ Perceptions”. Here is the abstract: Penalty Notices for Disorder (PNDs) were introduced in England and Wales under the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001. These police-issued fines (of £50 or £80) can be issued for 26 lowlevel offences including s5 of the Public Order Act 1986, drunk and disorderly, shoplifting and possession of cannabis. Since their roll-out in 2004 PNDs have become part of the mainstay of the criminal justice system. Over 140,000 PNDs were issued in 2010 and far more drunk and disorderly and s5 cases were disposed of via PND than were proceeded against in the magistrates’ court. Yet despite their widespread use little is known about how PNDs are used in practice and the perceptions and experiences of the adult recipients of PNDs remains unexplored by the literature. This paper presents some early findings from 73 surveys and 11 interviews undertaken with PND recipients and considers their perceptions of the procedural fairness of the scheme and the impact of this on their compliance with the PND.
