About the National Probation Service
The NPS is a people centered agency which manages all high risk offenders subject to community sentences and released on Licence from Prison who are assessed as high risk of committing an offence of serious harm. The NPS, in addition, manages all Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) for ensuring the safe management of registered sex offenders and violent offenders serving over 12 months. In addition, the NPS undertakes risk and need assessments on all eligible offenders appearing before the Courts and advises the Judiciary in respect of available sentences to reduce the risk of reoffending and to ensure the protection of the public.
Hull and East Riding Local Delivery Unit employs over 120 staff to manage the above arrangements including Senior Probation Officers, Probation Officers, Probation Service Officers, Administrators and Reception Staff. In addition, we are supported by Shared Services to provide Human Resources, Finance, IT and Training provision. The NPS is committed to the core values of respect, accountability, the belief that people can change and integrity. Our clear aims are to reduce reoffending and protect the public and ensure no further victims. H&ER LDU is a high performing LDU committed to high standards of service delivery and engagement with service users. You can follow the work of the NPS on twitter!
