The National Probation Service is a statutory criminal justice service that supervises high-risk offenders released into the community.

The National Probation Service was set up on 1 June 2014, along with 21 community rehabilitation companies that manage low and medium risk offenders. We work in partnership with the CRCs, with the courts, police and with private and voluntary sector partners in order to manage offenders safely and effectively.

Our priority is to protect the public by the effective rehabilitation of high risk offenders, by tackling the causes of offending and enabling offenders to turn their lives around.

We’re responsible for:

preparing pre-sentence reports for courts, to help them select the most appropriate sentence

managing approved premises for offenders with a residence requirement on their sentence

assessing offenders in prison to prepare them for release on licence to the community, when they will come under our supervision

helping all offenders serving sentences in the community to meet the requirements ordered by the courts

communicating with and prioritising the wellbeing of victims of serious sexual and violent offences, when the offender has received a prison sentence of 12 months or more, or is detained as a mental health patient
