UNCLASSIFIED PAGE 12 Fixed Term Recall - New information undermining the initial assessment of suitability 4.16 PPCS must be contacted immediately where an offender has been deemed suitable for a FTR and new information subsequently comes to light that calls into question the offender’s suitability. Such a re-assessment can only take place within the 28 day period of custody. The new evidence needs to have: Existed at the time of the FTR decision being taken; Was not available to the Secretary of State at that time that the decision as to the offender’s suitability for an FTR was taken; and Would have made the offender unsuitable for FTR at the time the assessment was made. Standard Recall 4.17 Determinate sentence offenders who are not assessed suitable for an FTR recall will be given a standard recall. Offenders who are given a standard recall are liable to remain in custody until the end of their licence. They may be re-released earlier if the Secretary of State or the Parole Board is satisfied that the risks presented by the offender can be safely managed within the community. 4.18 Offender managers must use the Request for Recall and Risk Management Report attached at Annex A to request a standard recall. After counter signature by line management the Report must be e-mailed to the appropriate recall casework team in PPCS along with the relevant supporting documents and should arrive within 24 hours of the offender manager’s decision to request recall. 4.19 PPCS is required to process a Standard Recall within 24 hours of receiving the recall request, unless the case meets the criteria for the emergency recall process. Emergency Recall Process It is recognised that it can be in the public interest to expedite the recall process in some cases. The emergency recall process will be invoked in cases where: There is current evidence that the offender is considered to present an increased risk of serious harm; The offender is subject to MAPPA level 3 arrangements, or is a Critical Public Protection Case (CPPC); or The offender’s behaviour has deteriorated to such an extent that re-offending is believed to be imminent.

UNCLASSIFIED PAGE 13 4.20 These cases will invariably be standard recalls, but there will be cases where the offender meets the suitability criteria for an FTR but where the risk of re-offending is considered to be imminent. In those instances the emergency recall process will also apply. Emergency recalls must be processed by PPCS (including the out of hours’ service) within 2 hours of the request for recall being made.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
