Napo Saddened by the passing of Sue Hall

Napo has been deeply saddened at the news of the passing of Sue Hall. Sue was a stalwart of probation.

Sue was the former Chief Officer for West Yorkshire Probation Trusts, the Chair of Probation Chiefs Association and later went on to work with the Probation Institute.

Katie Lomas Napo National Chair said “I am so sad to hear this news about my former Chief at West Yorkshire Probation, Sue Hall. The relationship between Chief and Union rep (who is also your subordinate) isn’t always easy to navigate but Sue did it well and I learned so much from her, about being a good Probation Officer and a good Napo rep”.

Ian Lawrence General Secretary added, “Sue was a champion for excellence in Probation. She fought with Napo to challenge Transforming Rehabilitation. I am sure she would have been pleased with the Government change in Policy. She will be greatly missed”. Napo would like to extend our condolences to her family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.

    Was privileged to work with Sue while she was with us in Wales. Her passion for gardening often flowed into and calmed down our debates in such a human way. So sad to hear of this news. Marcus Bedwell NAPO Cymru.
