The National Probation Service manages perpetrators subject to statutory supervision. At court, Probation staff identify domestic abuse perpetrators and undertake safeguarding activity.  We assess risk and need and propose appropriate sentences to the court.  The probation service supervises domestic abuse perpetrators on community orders, through prison sentences and on post-release licences, undertaking specific work to address risk factors surrounding domestic abuse and commissioning groupwork interventions.  Our Victim Contact Unit will offer a service to the victims of domestic abuse where the perpetrator receives over 12 months in custody.
