ABSTRACT
The author comments on the proposed changes to the delivery of probation services in Great Britain with the preference for an untested use of voluntary and private sector agencies. She explains why the proposed privatization of probation services will not work due to cultural differences between sectors. She also argues against the government's belief that organisations perform best with a financial incentive.
