Values in criminology and community justice

This chapter discusses the nature of probation values and the impact structural and organisational changes have had on the development of professional values and their relevance to contemporary probation practice. The impact of the different ‘sides’ that the person on supervision, practitioner and organisation might experience is considered, along with the impact of the ideological pressures of current penal policy. It argues that values remain of high value to practitioners regardless of the future shape of criminal justice provision, and that an inclusive debate about the nature of values and a statement of ethics for practice is necessary to ensure a professional rights based and anti-discriminatory practice in the future. It suggests that professional registration may be a consideration to achieve a professional identity within probation and the increasingly wide range of service providers likely in the future.
