Northumbria Probation- Our Priority
Our priority is to protect the public from harm and keep them safe. An important part of this is managing the risk posed by the offenders we supervise.
All offenders are assessed to establish the level of risk they pose to the public. This process usually begins with their first contact with us, often before they have been sentenced. Once an offender pleads guilty, or is found guilty, the court will normally request a pre sentence report before they decide on the most appropriate sentence. An important part of this report is an assessment of the risk the offender poses.
This process is very much moving boxes
to fit into place with the offender at hand.
