‘Offender management’ for probation means continuing commitment to constructive work with individuals who break the law but in a changing multi-agency context.
Providing a comprehensive introduction to criminal justice work, this essential text negotiates the structures set by law and policy and allows readers to think critically about roles, accountabilities and professional skills and judgement.
It examines how key areas of law and policy impact upon practice, highlighting challenges and dilemmas facing those involved in a variety of offender management roles. Separate chapters consider substance misuse, youth justice, human rights and safeguarding children.
The book will be essential for students of crime and justice, especially those taking the new offender management courses and practitioners in criminal justice and probation studies.
