Abstract

This chapter describes the Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) which provide a framework for supervision of high-risk offenders in the community in England and Wales. It will illustrate from research into prison behaviour how knowledge of prison behaviour has the potential to improve the efficiency of supervision in the community, and will describe a project, ADViSOR, designed to systematically provide information on observed behaviour in prison to offender managers in the community. The method of evaluation, including analysis of costs and benefits, is outlined, and ethical issues are discussed.
