I feel like the role of a probation officer is often misunderstood and we don't get much exposure (good anyway!) in news/TV so...ask me anything!

My husband got recalled for going on hoilday will he be recalled for 28 days or the rest of his sentence

It depends on lots of things, what’s his risk, what’s his engagement been like, is this the first time he’s been recalled?

Yes this is the first time he has been recalled he hasn’t had a warning and gets on really well with his probation officer. I’m not sure if it will be 28 days or longer. He isn’t high risk he left jail from a d cat

I would expect 28 days then. Has he already been returned to prison? He should have been told how long it’ll be or if not, I’d contact his probation officer as they will know.

Hi op! I'm a fellow po

@Bells3949 it'll be on his paperwork. He may also be returned to closed conditions

This only happened yesterday and he is still in the police station because it’s the weekend. Hasn’t spoke to his probation officer yet. He was told he is going to prison tomorrow but we are not sure how long for yet.

Why was he going on holiday knowing he's not allowed to leave the country unless it's approved? Also just because he was released from a D-Cat doesn't exclude him from being high risk.
