Collaboration between prison and probation at heart of prisoner management


Collaboration between prison and probation at heart of prisoner management

09/02/2016
A follow up review of how life and indeterminate sentenced prisoners are managed in Northern Ireland has highlighted the importance of collaboration between local prison and probation services.  View report page.

Brendan McGuigan CJI's Chief Inspector stressed reducing the level of risk to the public and dealing with the cause of offending behaviour should be in central to the work of both organisations as they prepared offenders for their eventual release.
 
"We welcome the progress made with the opening Burren House as a step-down facility for prisoners in the last 15 months of their sentence but I am disappointed work to establish a more integrated psychology service has not been achieved by the Northern Ireland Prison Service and the Probation Board for Northern Ireland," he said.
