Rehabilitation and Resettlement

Contact Us - Guernsey Prison

Share this page

The 'Rehabilitation and Resettlement' operating model focuses on an integrated approach to assisting convicted offenders away from crime which has been developed by the Prison and Probation Service over the past 12 years.

The Probation and Prison Services are the main agencies involved in the management of offenders but other agencies are also often involved, most specifically the Mental Health Services, Housing and Social Security and a range of voluntary agencies.

  • Offender Management Unit (OMU)

    • The unit based within the Prison is managed by a Senior Probation Officer overseeing a Prison team of a Principal Officer, Senior Officer, 3 Offender Supervisors, Psychotherapist, Substance Misuse Services, a Resettlement Officer and Case Administrator. A main grade Probation Officer is seconded to the unit and assumes the role of Offender Manager for all short-term prisoners, and community Probation Officers come into the prison and take the Offender Manger role for the long term prisoners.
  • End-to-End Offender Management

    • The time spent serving a prison sentence needs to be optimised to provide a real opportunity for constructive work. The focus is to identify how to make the most of a person's time in prison as well as how to make the difficult transition back into the community and life thereafter as productive and stress free as possible through planning and preparation. Re-offending is not the responsibility of criminal justice agencies alone, and this operating model depends upon partnership with a range of statutory and third sector specialist provisions to enable full social reintegration of offenders back into their community.
  • The Probation Service

    • The Probation (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2018 (1) states that the principal function of the Probation Service shall be to protect the public and work with offenders to reduce reoffending and aid rehabilitation. There is a close working relationship between the staff in the OMU and the community Probation team with joint training in all aspects of Offender Management. The community Probation Officers use the OMU office as their base when visiting prisoners, working alongside the OMU staff.
