Andrew Bridgen questions Prisons Minister about probation officer case loads

9th October 2018

Andrew Bridgen questions the Prisons Minister about the importance of ensuring that probation officers have manageable case loads.

Does the Minister agree that one key to aiding the rehabilitation of offenders is to ensure that probation officers have manageable case loads, so that they can give sufficient time and energy to each case?

A manageable case load is of course absolutely central, as is the flexibility to make sure that when a probation officer has a high-risk offender—a criminal who is more challenging to deal with—they have smaller numbers of offenders to deal with and can adjust their case load according to the risk posed by the individual and the complexity of the case.
