‘This book refreshingly uses evidence from research studies to present a persuasive argument for a proactive response to the largely forgotten issue of remand prisoners . . . an easy-to-read text . . . The authors integrate the research findings into practice, while also appreciating the fluid and changing nature of probation policy and practice . . . This is an informative, practical and clearly presented book recommended for anyone involved in pre-trial work. Practitioners will find some good insights to shape and develop practice, while policy-makers and managers are presented with some challenging findings that warrant careful considerations.’ British Journal of Social Work
‘If evidence were needed to support the notion of a joined-up criminal justice system this book appears to supply it . . . It is valuable fuel to today’s thinking.’ Magistrate
efficiency of the British criminal justice system is currently being called into
question by an escalating prison population, financial pressures and civil
liberties arguments. This book considers how pre-trial services can help shape
the future of probation practice when the fastest rising sector of the prison
population is those awaiting trial or sentencing.
represents the first detailed attempt to investigate the role the Probation
Service might play in this field, using an on-the-ground investigation of
current practice, a history of pre-trial services in Wales and England, a review
of the American experience, qualitative and quantitative material from selected
probation areas and interviews with leading figures in the world of criminal
authors argue for the systematic provision of pre-trial services at all points
in the criminal justice system and for this work to be located within a revived
and reinvigorated probation service. If best practice were to be repeated
throughout Wales and England, then millions of pounds could be saved to spend on
more worthwhile projects and thousands of people could be spared the devastation
and humiliation which a remand in custody brings.
