This research has explored the attitudes of Abu Dhabi criminal justice professionals about the possibility of implementing Community Service Sanctions (CSS) in The United Arab Emirates (UAE). The study has examined three main areas including: Abu Dhabi criminal justice professionals’ perspectives about implementing CSS in the UAE; the crimes which CSS can be applied on and the affects that CSS can have on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) penal system. In order to achieve the study objectives and answer the study questions, an explorative approach was taken. The methodology was mixed of quantitative and qualitative approaches, including: questionnaires and interviews and focus group discussions. Questionnaires were distributed to six of Abu Dhabi police Departments. Interviews were conducted with 20 of Abu Dhabi police officers holding senior positions in order to have their views on the study themes. And focus group discussions were held with judges, prosecutors, police officers and social workers. Furthermore, the study also examined the FPC and concluded that it needs some changes with regards to the implementation of some of its articles. The study shows that there are some elements of CSS within the FPC which do not seem to be implemented. The study also suggests that the FPC need to be revised regularly in order to implement or amend measures available. The study also shows that Abu Dhabi criminal justice system professionals generally support the implementation of CSS in the UAE.
