6.3 In some cases, the Secretary of State and the Parole Board will not be concerned with crime at all, but there may be other factors, such as behaviour associated with the index offence, or the ability of the Probation Trust/YOT to assess and manage the level of risk in the face of breaches of licence conditions which give reasonable cause for considering the licensee to be a risk to the public. 6.4 Where the offender displays violent/sexual behaviour which in itself represents a risk of harm to the public, the need to recall in order to protect the public is clear and unambiguous. In other cases, the behaviour may not be of a violent or sexual nature, but does present a clear causal link to the behaviour exhibited in the index offence(s). For example, the offender may have resumed substance abuse or re-established contact with other criminal associates both of which might be identified as critical risk factors. Where a causal link has been established, consideration should be given to whether this behaviour is likely to give rise to an increased risk of sexual or violent offending. Where it does, then invariably recall should be sought. PPCS will make the final decision as to whether the test has been met. 6.5 Offender managers must use the Request for Recall & Risk Management Report attached at Annex A to request a recall. All recalls in respect of indeterminate sentence offenders will be subject to the emergency recall process. After counter signature by line management the Request for Recall Report is e-mailed to the appropriate recall casework team in PPCS along with the relevant supporting documents (see paragraph 5.2) and should arrive within 24 hours of the offender manager’s decision to request recall. Request for recall should be endorsed by a Senior Supervising officer and must be endorsed by an Assistant Chief Officer. 6.6 Probation Trusts/YOTs must therefore ensure that supervising officers are given the mobile or home telephone numbers of relevant management staff in the Probation Trust/YOT for out-of-hours consultation in cases of emergency. However, if an emergency should arise out of normal office hours and it is not possible for the supervising officer to consult the senior officers, he or she must get in touch with a senior member of PPCS via the MoJ out-of-hours duty officer (Telephone 0207 217 3000 or 0300 047 5000) see Annex D .

Every effort must be made by Probation Trusts to ensure that all the relevant information regarding recall is given to PPCS as early in the day as possible so that key staff are available to consider the matter fully. 6.8 Once a licence has been revoked by PPCS, the recall process as set out in Part 2 of this instruction will apply.

    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.
