Justice ministry 'continues to support' probation staff

Justice Minister Andrew Selous has said the Ministry of Justice will "continue to support" probation staff after a survey suggested over half were "actively seeking" a new job.

Through our crucial reforms all offenders will receive 12 months rehabilitation in the community to turn their lives around, including those who are sentenced to less than a year in prison and currently get no support on release.

Probation staff are working hard to implement these reforms and we will continue to support them throughout this process.
