12 November 2012 | 5.30pm | Seminar
School of Law, The Liberty Building

The Lecture will be given by Professor Stephen Farrall, Sheffield University:

The Long-Term Impact of Probation Supervision

Outline: All too often evaluations of probation supervision end in downbeat assessments. Null (or negative) findings litter the evidence base. It appears as difficult as ever to discern lasting messages about what helps people move away from engagement in crime. However, such studies often follow people up for a limited period of time. Using data from a sample originally sentenced to probation supervision in 1997/98, and interviewed about their experiences up to five times (most recently in 2010-12), Professor Farrall shall argue that probation can assist even the most entrenched of offenders to stop offending, and that the 'unfolding' of the effects of probation supervision can take very many years.
