The aim of this paper is to explore the Persistent
and other Priority Offenders (PPO) Scheme. The
paper will critically examine the scheme paying
reference to the potential contradictions in the
aims of the strategy. Following this the paper will
explore the issues raised by the selection method
used within the PPO scheme. The paper will argue
that there are some real tensions in relation to
justice by geography and that the strategy is
leading to a differentiated approach across
England and Wales.
