Being recalled for breaking the license, not the law
Over the coming years, nearly 6,000 people are recalled, and this is due to a breach of their licence terms. This costs the UK government on average £17.1 billion per year. So why is that an issue? The recall rate is primarily due to not understanding their terms not committing otherwise. Moreover, more data shows that 41% of people on probation involved a charge of further offending, 72% of people on probation involved non-compliance, 28% of people on probation involved failure to keep in touch and 23% of people on probation involved failure.
The simplified diagram illustrates the three main stakeholders and how people on probation go through the four stages in their release journey.
