Quick Reference



Probation works hard to reduce levels of offending so as to better protect communities from the damaging effects of crime. At the heart of our work is the effective delivery of community sentences, the management of prison licences and victim protection. We have a strong reputation for engaging with other criminal justice agencies, local authorities, health trusts, employment and training providers and other organisations working together to make Essex a safer place for its communities.


Essex CRC Annual Service Plan 2015-16 Essex CRC Business Plan 2014-15 CERTIFICATE OF EMPLOYERS’ LIABILITY INSURANCE


We get business excellence award – again!

Essex CRC was recently re-accredited with ISO 9001 Certification.

The award formed part of our first year’s surveillance process, with an external auditor from EMB-Excellence Ltd inspecting both Central and Mid Essex Delivery Units.

ISO 9001 is the international standard that measures an organisation’s commitment to Quality Management and maintaining the highest standards of continuous improvement.

Members of staff were interviewed as part of the audit process and the buildings were also inspected over two days, checking on the work environment and infrastructure.

Hannah Hunt, Quality Manager, said: “I was delighted by the positive contribution staff made to this inspection visit. From new starters to established members of staff, we heard excellent evidence of their commitment to Quality and continual improvement. I am particularly proud of the internal auditor team that carries out audits across Essex CRC, providing valuable information and feedback which contributes hugely to our quality improvements.”

At the end of the visit, Essex CRC was pleased to receive the update that it had clearly demonstrated its commitment to Quality Management and retained the ISO 9001 accreditation.

The new ISO 9001 Certificate is now proudly displayed at our head office in Witham. [Updated: 16 December 2014]
