Failings by the Ministry of Justice in the part-privatisation of probation services have been “extremely costly” for taxpayers, the National Audit Office (NAO) has said.
A review of Chris Grayling’s Transforming Rehabilitation programme, published on Friday, added that the number of people on short sentences recalled to jail had soared and the termination of contracts with private probation companies would cost at least £171m.
There has been a 2.5% reduction in the proportion of offenders proven to have committed another crime between 2011 and March 2017. However, the number of offences per reoffender has increased by 22%.
