Our over-riding aim is to reduce reoffending and protect the public.
They will stay on licence in the community for the rest of the sentence and will continue any rehabilitative work begun in prison.
This means they must report regularly to London Community Rehabilitation Company or National Probation Service staff and keep to the conditions of their licence, e.g. not approaching a victim, staying out of a particular neighbourhood or observing a curfew.
Offenders who fail to keep to the terms of their licence may be returned to prison.
