leave a comment »

In the latest podcast, I talk to the Chairman of the Parole Board for England and Wales. (There is a separate Parole Board for Scotland). The Parole Board is an independent body that carries out risk assessments on prisoners to determine whether they can be safely released into the community.

In the interview, we discuss when and why the Board was created, how its functions have developed over the years, and its current work.
