A quarterly publication providing key statistics relating to offenders who are in prison or under Probation Service supervision.
This publication covers flows into these services (receptions into prison or probation starts) and flows out (discharges from prison or probation termination) as well as the caseload of both services at specific points in time. The publication also includes information on returns to custody following recall. It replaced three previous statistics publications: the monthly population in custody bulletin, Probation Statistics Quarterly and Licence recalls and returns to Custody.
The October - December quarterly bulletin is accompanied by the annual set of tables which have previously been published as the annual Offender Management Caseload Statistics. These tables show longer term trends and additional detail relating to offenders who are in prison or under Probation Service supervision and also include information on mentally disordered offenders.
