1.3 This PSI also sets out the ongoing arrangements to ensure the swift and effective recall to custody of those offenders on licence and whose behaviour indicates they present an increased risk of harm and/or (in the case of determinate sentence offenders) an increased risk of further offending. 1.4 The PSI explains new arrangements to streamline the processes for reviewing the ongoing detention of recalled determinate sentence prisoners and to improve the engagement of those agencies responsible for conducting such reviews. The new processes are intended to facilitate the swift re-release of such prisoners as soon as it is safe to do so. They also focus prison and Parole Board resources on those recalled prisoners who present potentially the greatest risk of harm to the public. They significantly reduce the number of risk management reports requested of offender managers. PSI 17/2013-PI 07/2013-AI 09/2013 UNCLASSIFIED IS- SUE DATE 11/07/2013

UNCLASSIFIED PAGE 3 1.5 The PSI sets out a single process for reviewing the continued detention of all determinate sentence recalled prisoners who have been in custody for 12 months or longer following their recall. The PSI also revises existing processes to accommodate new electronic caseworking systems (e-casework). 1.6 The Instruction replaces PC 14/2008 and attaches the latest version of the Joint National Protocol on Recall. 1.7 A general summary of all the changes made to release and recall provisions by the LASPO Act 2012 are set out in PSI 30/2012 ) 2 Desired Outcomes 2.1 An effective recall process which enables offenders on licence to be swiftly returned to custody if their behaviour indicates that they present an increased risk of harm to the public and/or (in the case of determinate sentence prisoners) increased risk of re- offending. 2.2 Effective and transparent arrangements for identifying which recalled determinate sentence prisoners are suitable for a fixed term recall. 2.3 A recall process which ensures that the review of recalled prisoners’ ongoing detention is conducted speedily, efficiently and transparently, without nugatory work, and where all participants are provided with clear timescales for their part of the process. Recalled prisoners should not be detained any longer than is necessary to protect the public and prevent further re-offending. 2.4 A recall dossier which provides a coherent assessment of the offender and their response to supervision, including the events which triggered a request for recall. Where required, the dossier should also provide clear and comprehensive proposals for the future management of the offender in the community. 2.5 The effective operation of e-casework, whereby the recall and review processes operate on a paperless basis, thereby maximising the efficiency of the process, improving the security of personal data, and facilitating better communications between all the agencies involved in the process.

    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.
