Throughcare: Stages in the Provision of a Throughcare Service to Prisoners

Throughcare Map

SRO, Plus Extended Sentence of Less Than Four Years

Supervised Release Order – Breach

Where a person subject to a Supervised Release Order fails to comply with the requirements, the supervising officer must report the grounds of the alleged breach to the court. Only the court which made the Supervised Release Order can deal with such alleged breaches.

Extended Sentence

A prisoner subject to an Extended Sentence is subject to recall to custody in the same way as any other prisoner on licence. The supervising officer should report non-compliance to the SEJD as they would with a prisoner serving more than four years. Where the prisoner re-offends in the "at risk" period i.e. when he is no longer on licence, there is no specific social work role.
