achieved, it will reduce the number of recalled offenders in custody, but will increase the number of offenders being supervised in the community. 2.25 NOMS Public Protection Casework Section (PPCS) will assume responsibility for managing the annual review process for EPP prisoners previously undertaken by establishments, in addition to the review process for all other recalled determinate sentence prisoners. This means that the file currently prepared within establishments will be prepared and submitted to the Parole Board by PPCS. Currently there are approximately 300 of these types of cases dealt per year. As a result, there will be the potential for small savings in administration for establishments as they will no longer be required to prepare dossiers in relation to these cases.

UNCLASSIFIED PAGE 6 3 Roles and Responsibilities 3.1 The recall and review of prisoners is a multi-agency process and requires effective liaison and cooperation between the agencies concerned. Set out below are the key responsibilities for all the agencies concerned. Probation Service 3.2 Probation Trusts have the statutory duty to supervise offenders released from prison on licence and, when appropriate, to initiate the process of recall speedily in order to protect the public and/or prevent any further offending. Probation Trust responsibilities include: Ensure that PPCS are provided with a full and complete Request for Recall Report and all supporting paperwork within 24 hours of taking an “in principle” decision to seek recall, with all such information being provided in electronic format and through secure email; Liaise with the Police to provide any available information and intelligence, which may facilitate the offender’s swift apprehension and return to custody; Provide the Parole Board and PPCS with up to date reports on the offender’s progress whilst on licence, including an up to date assessment of risk and appropriate Risk Management Plans within the deadlines as set out on the forms themselves; Liaise with the prisoner, PPCS and prison OMUs in reviewing the prisoner’s ongoing detention; Attend Parole Board oral hearings when directed and provide oral evidence to Parole Board panels; Maintain a list of unlawfully at large (UAL) offenders in their Trust; Ensure victims in the victim contact scheme have the opportunity to make representations about release conditions and receive information about the offender as appropriate. This should normally include information about recall (further guidance can be found in the Victim Liaison Policy Guidance Manual PC 11/2008); and Ensure Offender Managers keep Victim Liaison Officers (VLO) informed throughout the recall and re-release 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.
