A BOTCHED sell-off of Britain’s probation service has put the public in danger, rehabilitation workers said yesterday after the publication of a damning new report.
Inspectors found staff assigned to manage low and medium-risk individuals in Gloucestershire were making “heroic efforts” but faced “plainly unreasonable” caseloads.
The report, authored by HM Chief Inspector of Probation Glenys Stacey, said a community rehabilitation company (CRC) in the county owned by Aurelius/ Working Links was “poor.”
Dame Glenys said “plans were not being followed through anywhere near well enough and some offenders were not being seen often enough.”
In several cases, the CRC had lost contact with an offender for “significant periods.”
One man convicted of assault was said to have had no contact for two months after his first officer left.
