Relaunching Britain's probation service

A new, unified Probation Service has been launched today to tackle reoffending so that the public are better protected from crime as we build back safer from the pandemic.

  • A strong probation service is vital for cutting crime – but for too long its important work helping victims and tackling reoffending has been overlooked.
  • That is why the government has unified the Probation Service, so it can deliver a better and more consistent approach to supervising offenders – backed by £300 million since 2019 and with plans to recruit 1,500 more staff this year – it will increase face-to-face supervision, strengthen community service orders, and better utilise electronic monitoring. 
  • A stronger probation service will mean that the public is better protected, crime is cut and fewer people become victims.
