National Probation Service
The National Probation Service is responsible for overseeing offenders released from prison on licence and those on community sentences made by the courts.
We aim to make Norfolk and Suffolk safer by protecting the public, reducing re-offending and preventing future victims. Our staff work in the courts, the community and in prisons to rehabilitate offenders and liaise with the victims of serious crime.
At any one time our staff are supervising more than 3,000 offenders on community sentences. We prepare more than 5,000 reports for the Magistrates and Crown courts every year, and supervise the completion of more than 300,000 hours of Community Payback hours in local neighbourhoods in Norfolk and Suffolk.
A national charity giving free and confidential help to victims of crime, witnesses, their family, friends and anyone else affected across England and Wales.
Norfolk has three Prison Service establishments; HMP/YOI Norwich, HMP Wayland and HMP Bure. These establishments deal with a very wide range of offenders some of whom will be MAPPA cases for release within the local community. It is extremely important that we are able to act as a liaison point for external agencies when these individuals are due to be released into the community and the MAPPA process enables this to be done most effectively.
