Public Protection : Critical Theory, Policy and Practice in Probation and Rehabilitation (Paperback)
about this item
In 2013, the White Paper entitled ‘Transforming Rehabilitation’ advocated the dismantling of the probation service and the creation of two new entities: a smaller National Probation Service (NPS), which would work with high risk offenders, and larger Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs), who would work with medium and low risk offenders. This book offers a detailed analysis of the vast and radical changes taking place across the probation service in England and Wales, rooted in theory, policy and practice of public protection.
Written by an expert in the field, with experience both as an academic and a practitioner, this book covers a range of topics such as discrimination, domestic violence, youth justice, mentally disordered offenders and substance abuse. It is essential reading for a range of courses on criminal justice, probation, offender management, community justice and crime and public policy.
