London Probation

London Probation

We are the largest of the 21 Community Rehabilitation Companies across England and Wales, employing nearly 1,200 staff across London. Our role is to manage the majority of offenders under probation supervision. We work alongside the National Probation Service, which manages offenders who have been assessed as presenting high risk of harm to others. Our staff supervise around 25,000 offenders at any one time, across 620 square miles of the capital’s 33 boroughs covering a population of 8.6 million people. Our role is to reduce reoffending and make London safer. Together with other criminal justice agencies, such as the Police, Prisons and Courts, we protect the public.

Our skilled and experienced staff work directly with offenders to:
• Tackle the causes of their offending behaviour
• Enable them to turn their lives around
• Rehabilitate them back into the community.


We work with offenders aged 18 and over who have been either sentenced by the courts to a Community Order or Suspended Sentence Order, or released on licence from prison to serve the rest of their sentence in the community.
Upon release Prison staff will issue you with your licence telling you which probation office to report to for your first appointment with your offender manager. You must keep this appointment or you risk being re-arrested and returned to Prison.
