Post Sentence Supervision Requirements Policy Framework

This document sets out the mandatory actions to be undertaken in relation to Post Sentence Supervision, following release on licence.



Post Sentence Supervision was introduced by the Offender Rehabilitation Act 2015, and has the effect of increasing the combined period on supervision post-release by individuals to 12 months when subject to a determinate custodial sentence of more than one day but less than 24 months.

This Framework reformats the previous Prison Service Instruction (PSI)/Probation Instruction (PI) and makes understanding the differences between supervision on licence and supervision on Post Sentence Supervision easier than ever before.
