We Are Straightline #14 - Probation, Licence and Recall

For most people serving prison sentences in the UK, the halfway point means going home to serve the rest of your time supervised in the community. But for some, this can be the hardest part of their sentence.

Former prisoners David, Errol, Adam and Micky are sharing their mixed experiences of probation, prison law expert Claire Salama is telling us how people's license conditions are determined, and Brenda's invited her old probation officer into the studio for a chat about the support on offer to people leaving prison.

We Are Straightline is your guide to life after prison. People inside prison can listen to the show on 12pm and 6pm Fridays, repeated again 2pm on Sundays, so tell them to get involved!
