Institute of Criminology



Jane Dominey has been at the Institute of Criminology since October 2011. Her research interests include probation practice, desistance from offending, supervising offenders ‘through-the-gate’ and in the community, and providing support to prisoners and their families. She supervises graduate and undergraduate students.

The focus of her doctoral research was probation supervision in the context of the increased use of voluntary sector organisations and private companies in the delivery of offender management.

Before moving to the Institute of Criminology, Jane was a Principal Lecturer in the Community and Criminal Justice Division at De Montfort University, managing probation office training programmes and teaching students. She qualified as a Probation Officer in 1990 and worked for the Probation Service in a variety of roles for more than ten years.
