In a Mixed Market of Probation Providers What Future for Quality Supervision of Offenders?

Jane Dominey, from the University of Cambridge, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Punishment and its alternatives,” under the title “In a Mixed Market of Probation Providers What Future for Quality Supervision of Offenders?”. Here is the abstract: This paper explores the challenge of ensuring good quality practice in the delivery of community sanctions. It considers two contemporary policy developments in England and Wales: the growing use of commissioning and competition to increase the involvement of voluntary not-for-profit organisations and private companies in the delivery of probation services and the renewed interest in offender engagement as a means of improving the outcomes of community supervision. The paper investigates the tensions inherent in these policies and considers the challenge of ensuring that offenders find supervision coherent and purposeful. It will discuss the circumstances in which good practice is most likely to emerge. The paper draws on work from the first stages of a PhD project that will explore the offender experience of supervision in the context of a mixed market for providers.
