A total of 2,853 prisoners were released from prison between 17 December 2018 and 31 December 2018 inclusive. Of these, 325 individuals had a licence recall within one month (31 days) of release although not all would have been apprehended by the Police and returned to prison custody within that timeframe.
Public protection is our priority. Offenders on licence are subject to strict licence conditions and supervision and are liable to be recalled to custody where they breach their licence conditions.
