The overriding priority is to protect the public from harm and prevent re-offending.</p><p> </p><p>The recall of offenders on licence is designed to protect the public by removing an offender from the community who, by breaching his licence conditions, is considered to present an increased risk of re-offending and where the Probation Service recommends that this is the most effective response to the increased risk, in order to protect the public.</p><p> </p><p>Behaviour that can result in recall includes: the commission of further offences or charges being laid; behaviour which indicates that further offending is imminent; or breaches of licence conditions which undermine the Probation Service's ability to provide effective supervision, such as not living at the address stipulated on the licence or failing to attend probation appointments.</p><p> </p><p>Once recalled, it is the responsibility of the police to apprehend offenders, although all agencies closely co-operate to ensure that they are swiftly returned to custody.</p><p> </p><p>Data on those offenders who had committed minor breaches of licence, were warned, and not recalled to prison are not collected centrally. Those offenders whose breach of licence has resulted in a recall to prison are published quarterly in the Ministry of Justice's Offender Management Statistics Quarterly Bulletin. This may be found at the following web address:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/offender-management-statistics-quarterly" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/offender-management-statistics-quarterly</a></p><p> </p><p>The most recent bulletin was published on 30 January 2014, covering all offenders who were recalled to custody since 1 January 1984 and who remained unlawfully at large as at 31 December 2013.
