“The return of the whole of the probation service from greedy, fumbling private hands into public ownership makes us all safer and returns this vital service where it should have been left,” said Doug Nicholls, General Secretary of the GFTU. “It represents a fantastic victory for the National Association of Probation Officers which has been tenacious, reasonable and steadfast since the damage of privatisation was first done. We now look forward to offering any help we can to NAPO and the service to rebuild and strengthen as an essential public service again.”
