The Ministry of Justice is conducting an internal review of the probation system. The review is considering all aspects of the probation system and we are engaging with both Community Rehabilitation Companies and the National Probation Service. As with our plans for prisons, we want a simpler, clearer system with specific outcome measures such as getting offenders into apprenticeships and work. We will set out our plans for the probation system once the review is concluded in April.
