This book examines the evidence for the effectiveness of prison and programmes in the community aimed at reducing reoffending and some of the claims and counter-claims for whether “prison works.” The main focus of this book is the high prison population and austere financial climate in England and Wales, the challenges these present for the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) and particularly HM Prison Service, and the emerging evidence of “what works” in reducing reoffending.
