Probation data

Since June 2014, the probation service of England and Wales has been operated by the public-sector National Probation Service (NPS), which manages the most high risk offenders across seven divisions; and 21 private-sector Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs), that manage medium and low risk offenders. They are responsible for supervising offenders who are given community sentences and Suspended Sentence Orders by the courts, as well as offenders given custodial sentences, both before and after their release.
