Chairwoman and members of the Probation Board of the Royal Court, I have the pleasure of submitting the Jersey Probation and After-Care Service (JPACS) Annual Report for 2021. The past year has seen the Probation Service continue to achieve impressive results, despite the challenge of the pandemic and the restrictions and difficulties this has caused. Until April, the Service had to work within two distinct teams to provide resilience in case of infections-an adjustment that the team coped with due to flexibility, determination, and goodwill. These results have been made possible by a team that has continually striven to work both skilfully and positively-often covering the work of colleagues at short notice where circumstances have demanded. This ethos permeates the service whether it is in the field of criminal justice, family work, administration or within our excellent cohort of volunteers. In expressing my appreciation to them, I would also like to acknowledge the support of the Probation Board who have enabled the Service to show initiative whilst holding the work of its officers to account.
This report will highlight the work undertaken in 2021; the areas where we were successful, and some of the work we will continue to need to develop.
