The former chief executive of Kent probation heads a small team working across most of south-east England ? Kent, Surrey and Sussex ? which aims to bid in partnership with the private sector to take over the community rehabilitation company (CRC) responsible from next year for the management and supervision of low- to medium-risk offenders in the three counties. The contract is said to be worth up to £28m.
