IPSCJ to lead evaluation workshop at national Integrated Offender Management Conference

The IPSCJ will lead the Evaluating Integrated Offender Management – defining what success looks like and creating effective practice and partnerships workshop at the national Integrated Offender Management (IOM) conference this week.

The interactive workshop, hosted by the Institute’s Dr Iain Britton and Sam Cole, is expected to engage over 120 IOM experts and staff leads from police forces, probation services, community rehabilitation companies and academia, as well as a range of other agencies from across the country, over the course of the March 9th and 10th at Wyboston, Bedfordshire.

IOM is a partnership activity undertaken across England and Wales designed to pro-actively manage targeted offenders who have been assessed as presenting high risk of re-offending and harm to local communities.

The IPSCJ has been asked to lead the workshop due to it’s activity in the field, currently undertaking a strategic review of IOM across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire.

Dr Britton, IPSCJ associate, said:

“It is crucial that we continue to develop ways to effectively evaluate outcomes and maximise the positive impact of Integrated Offender Management.

“Our workshops will draw upon expertise from across the country and identify the best ways of capturing the effectiveness of IOM to help support the further development of the evidence-base across projects nationally.”
