The article comments on England's University of Portsmouth's critical study of intensive supervision and surveillance programmes (ISSP). The call to scrap ISSP by the University seems incredibly bold, says the author. The ISSP provides a structured and intensive alternative to custody. Without it, yet more young people would be handed custodial sentences, opines the author.
