About this product
- DescriptionThis book gives a unique account of the origins, growth and development of the probation service during its 100 year history. It presents historical material, official (Home Office) documents, probation statistics, and research reports. It explains the changes that have taken place between 1907 and 2010. With the 100th anniversary of the probation service in 2007, and the arrival of National Offender Management Services, it is a particularly appropriate time to examine the history of probation. This book offers an account of the history and development of the service. Its main aim is to provide an accessible, reliable and timely account of the origins and development of the probation service from its beginnings in the second half of the 19th century up to its incorporation into NOMS.
