Welcome to Probation Day 2021!
21 August this year marks 114 years since the Royal Assent to the Probation of Offenders Act 1907. In celebration of this we are taking some time to reflect on the hugely positive impact of the work of the Probation Service and celebrate the ethos and traditions of the organisation, past present and future . So we intend to celebrate this date in 2021 and annually from then on as Probation Day!
For this, the inaugural year and leading up to the day itself, we will be running a week long programme of amazing events and features for staff who are now members of the new unified service, but there will also be plenty to interest our partners in the wider criminal justice sector. This commences on Monday 16 August. Each day that week, content will be themed, highlighting areas of our work including victims, courts, staff, People on Probation and partnerships. There will also be a feature on how to join us and come work for the Probation Service.
Stay tuned to the HMPPS Insights website and HMPPS social media for fantastic videos and articles showcasing the hugely positive contributions the Probation Service makes towards protecting the public and changing people’s lives.
