Offender Management

Every member of staff in Probation contributes to the management of the offender – the risks of reoffending, and of harm; their current behaviours, activities and attitudes, and ultimately their ability to self manage and avoid further offending.

Central to this is the supervision by the Offender Manager, previously referred to as ‘Probation Officer’, who sets expectations, boundaries and the agenda, and plans with the offender for their future, referring to specialist interventions where necessary.
