Charles Hanson believes OASys and current approaches to probation work is a total failure in providing what is really needed to reduce the risk of offending behaviour
Comments about this article
9/2/2011 Mrs A CoxBrilliant and so very true. Everything I have thought, Mr Hanson has put into words and very skillfully as well. If the OASys work, why are so many ex prisoners re-offending? Because the probation service is now more concerned about "Box Ticking" and catergorising rather than helping to rehabilitate the ex offender.
