London Probation Trust Visits Newark Community Solutions

Yesterday morning, senior representatives of the London Probation Trust visited Newark Community Solutions. The delegation included Heather Monro, the Probation Trusts’ Chief Executive. The London Probation Trust is the largest of the 35 probation trusts across England and Wales, employing over 3,000 staff. The Trust works towards reducing re-offending and rehabilitates offenders.  Their staff work with 70,000 offenders in the community from their first court appearance to the completion of sentence.  They supervise and deliver the sentences of the courts including programs to change offending behavior and help offenders lead productive lives.  The visitors observed Newark Community Solutions cases and participated in a round-table discussion with NCS staff, Municipal Court judges, and representatives from Essex County Probation and the Center for Court Innovation.
