The aim of Bedfordshire Youth Offending Service (BYOS) is to reduce offending and re-offending of young people. The Youth Offending Service is made up of representatives from the police, probation service, social services, health, education, drugs and alcohol misuse. Because the service incorporates representatives from a wide range of services, it can respond to the needs of young offenders in a comprehensive way. The Youth Offending Service identifies the needs of each young offender by assessing them with a national assessment (ASSET). This helps to identity specific problems that make the young person offend as well as measuring the risk they pose to others. This enables the YOS to identify suitable programmes to address the needs of the young person with the intention of preventing further offending.
