The two studies in this paper aim to investigate the prevalence and characteristics of people with intellectual disabilities in the probation service in England, Study one screened the abilities of a sample of 70 probationers in one single probation service. Study two compares a sub-set of these to an equal number of control participants in order to further investigate the characteristics of those with intellectual disability on probation. Nearly 6% of service users appeared to have an intellectual disability, and 11% fell into the bottom 5% of the general Population in terms of their intellectual and social functioning. We conclude that a significant minority of those in the probation service have an intellectual disability or similar needs.
