This remains simply the best professional directory of its kind. It maintains its high standards each year because it is produced by a working probation officer who knows what his colleagues need. The Directory features full details of the National Directorate of the Probation Service for England and Wales and all Probation Areas including the recently restructured London Area. Details of the Probation and Welfare Service of the Irish Republic are also included. However, it is more than just a list of the names and addresses of those in the probation service. It lists Home Office and Prison Service Agency personnel, all UK prisons, probation and bail hostels, services for adult offenders in Scotland, all NACRO addresses, specialist accommodation and other services for offenders, and a comprehensive collection of miscellaneous addresses.
Listings also include all Youth Offending Teams, CAFCASS Area Offices, the Scottish Executive Community Justice Services Division, the Prison and Probation Services Psychology Group, all Area Psychologists, the Home Office Mental Health Unit, High Security Hospitals and many other useful addresses, plus an invaluable Glossary of all the abbreviations commonly used within the Probation Service. An invaluable source of information that is needed in day to day work with offenders, the Napo Probation Directory is the book that everyone who works in or with the criminal justice system needs immediately to hand.
