Information is not available on the number of probation service staff that have been subject to disciplinary action or the reasons for the disciplinary action as this information is not collected centrally.

As employers in their own right, each of the 35 probation trusts has its own investigation and disciplinary policy and procedure, and the investigation and disciplinary process is a matter for them.
