Report: Primary Justice Reloaded: a model for localised probation services

The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) is consulting on plans to reform the Probation Service and community sentencing. These proposals are contained in two consultations: Punishment and Reform: Effective Probation Services andPunishment and Reform: Effective Community Services. This paper from the LGiU, in association from Unison, is divided into four sections: the first explores why the Government is proposing reform; the second summarises the two consultations and explains what the plans are; the third considers the issues these reforms raise; the fourth examines the case for an expanded role for local authorities focusing on investments in primary justice.
