Plan to Improve Compliance with Procedures for Managing Parole Orders 2008-2009

The purpose of this plan is to outline the steps already taken and the work underway or planned to address the impediments to, and ensure that staff follow, the procedures for managing parole orders.

While the Plan has a range of specific actions in it – one of the critical pre-requisites for success is that every manager and staff member take greater responsibility for ensuring that they exercise judgement within the context of compliance with
procedures and always ensure they do not compromise public safety.

As much as the culture needs to contain elements of judgement, compliance with procedures, and responsibility it must always be clear that the context of probation work is that of focusing on public safety.
