Policies and Procedures. Discipline and Punishment

It is fascinating returning to an area you have visited some time ago. Will you recognise the terrain, the buildings, the people? It is the same with policies and procedures. Will they be the same or have they changed beyond recognition? In 1975, under the auspices of the Apex Trust - a charity concerned with the employment problems of ex-offenders - we were studying the problems of people in the white-collar field who had a criminal conviction. Would professional bodies resist their entry, would disgraced professional persons lose their livelihood, and so on? Nearly a quarter of a century later a return visit to the same area is an interesting experience. Keith Soothill
