Prospect: Probation Past, Present and Future
- 235 Downloads
Prospect explains how the idea of this book evolved from a collective concern about how the selling off of a major proportion of the probation service had undermined a valuable resource within the criminal justice system. It highlights what is being lost with a short history of the unique and varied contribution of the service not only to criminal justice but also to social welfare generally. It then sets the scene with a summary of the combined experience of the contributors and a brief summary of the focus of each chapter.
