Newsletter – 31 May 2012

This edition of our newsletter reports, in particular, on our joint PCA and PA efforts to showcase in the media the good work of probation and also on a number of developments relevant to the offender health agenda. I would like also to take this opportunity to welcome Jersey Probation Service and Guernsey Probation Service who joined the PCA as affiliated members from the beginning of May. We value your feedback.
