This paper will introduce Integrated Offender Management, its history and the recent changes introduced as part of the 2021 National Refresh of IOM. We will set out some of the basic parameters of IOM, its main features, and the research we have been involved in. IOM is a programme to support different groups of individuals in the community through close collaboration of the police and probation services. The programme is of interest on a number of levels. The collaboration between police and probation services – two organisations with different ethos and value systems but both under significant pressure in terms of public confidence – allows for observation of how the cultures of the organisation and the values of individuals come together. IOM is community based and the way it is organised differs across different police and probation services and depends on very localised arrangements, including whether or not IOM is co-located in community hubs, based in police stations, or in probation premises. Such local arrangements may shed light on potential community safety arrangements at a local level. Finally, of course, the effectiveness of IOM in supporting some individuals with the most persistent record of offending behaviour remains to be established. The paper will set out how much we know about these issues and how ongoing research will assist in providing further insights.
