Probation Trusts should aim to facilitate the safe re-release of all recalled offenders PRIOR to the expiry of sentence. The Parole Board and/or the Secretary of State will look to re-release as soon as it is practicable and safe to do so. The decision will be based upon whether it is satisfied that the sentence and risk management plans are sufficient to manage the offender’s risks in the community. The factors it will take into account and which will need to be addressed in the risk management plan are: O Likely future compliance with licence conditions and supervision o Management arrangements, including the use of additional conditions, accommodation, offending behaviour, employment opportunities, etc. o Substance misuse treatment o Treatment options in respect of mental health issues Where any parts of the plan cannot be immediately put in place (e.g. accommodation), you must advise on what needs to happen, and the likely time scale, in order to give effect to a successful re-release risk management plan. These might influence the timing of the next review Where the offender needs to undertake further work whilst in custody, in order to facilitate a safe re-release, this should be outlined with a timescale if known, as the Parole Board/PPCS will require an update at any further review when they will look to re-release.

UNCLASSIFIED PAGE 83 Treatment programmes should not be specified, details of the offending behaviour(s) that need to be addressed should be provided. A clear recommendation should be given by the offender manager as to whether, on the basis of the risk management plan/sentence plan set out, the offender should be released from custody. The recommendation must be based on the manageability of the offender, and comment should be made on the likelihood of compliance with the risk management/sentence plan, throughout the remainder of the licence period. Where the recommendation does not support release, clear reasons must be given and must be endorsed by the line manager. The report must set out what the potential timescales might be for future safe re-release and what work needs to be done to achieve it. In these cases it would be helpful to offer a recommendation as to the timing of the next review. In the case of determinate sentence offenders, if a decision whether to re-release has not yet been reached either by the Parole Board or PPCS and the offender reaches LED/SED, the Governor, of the holding establishment must release automatically. Endorsement of Recommendation and Risk Management/Sentence Plan by Line Manager (SPO) – Advice from an ACO (or equivalent) should normally be sought for MAPPA level 3, indeterminate, extended sentenced prisoners and complex cases.

    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.
