The 35 probation trusts ceased to provide probation services as of midnight on 31 May 2014. As a result of the change to the structure of the Probation Service, the National Probation Service (NPS) and the Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs) commenced operations on 1 June 2014.
Information on the workforce of the CRCs will be reported within the quarterly ‘Community Rehabilitation Company workforce information staff in post’ summary reports. NPS staff now form part of the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) workforce and will therefore be included within the existing quarterly ‘National Offender Management Service workforce statistics bulletin’ publication.
The reports include detailed information on staffing numbers at national and local CRC levels, including periodic comparisons (from quarter 2, 2014 to 2015 onwards).
