Dr Jill Annison, FPInst
Fellow of the Probation Institute
Jill qualified as a probation officer in 1978 and her early career centred on working with offenders and young people in trouble. After the award of a 1st Class degree with the Open University she followed a more academic path and subsequently completed her PhD ‘Probing Probation: Issues of Gender and Organisation within the Probation Service’, which focused on change in Probation at that time.
She undertook the role of Programme Co-ordinator for the BSc (Hons) Community Justice (Probation Studies) at the University of Plymouth / SW Probation Region from 1998 to 2004. She then moved into a mainstream role within the Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies team at Plymouth, while continuing to focus on Probation and interventions with adult offenders. Her most recent publication is the book ‘Women and Criminal Justice: From the Corston Report to Transforming Rehabilitation’ which she co-edited with Jo Brayford and John Deering (published by Policy Press in October 2015).
