Prison Licensing System

On Parole: the Prison Licensing System and Its Effects on Individual Convicts, 1853-1900

Helen Johnston, from the University of Hull, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Punishment and its alternatives,” under the title “On Parole: the Prison Licensing System and Its Effects on Individual Convicts, 1853-1900”. Here is the abstract: This paper discusses the license or parole system from the mid-nineteenth century to the twentieth century. What was it designed to achieve: Was the objective to assist with the rehabilitation; was it simply a residual mechanism which was unthinkingly repatriated from Australia to the UK after transportation ended? Did licensed convicts re-offend? This research has approached these questions in two ways, firstly examining what the system meant in policy, bureaucratic and financial terms. Secondly, we examine the impact of the license system at individual level. We will present contemporary license documentation to show how we have attempted to determine whether the system helped or hindered rehabilitation; and present some case studies of licensed convicts in the late nineteenth century.
