Effective rehabilitation of offenders on community-based orders with maximum participation of families and the community.
Instead of sentencing a person who has committed an offence to penal or corrective institutions, the Court may make a Probation Order requiring him to be under the supervision of the Probation Officer or a Volunteer Probation Officer for a period between 6 months and 3 years. The Probation Order includes a set of conditions for compliance to ensure the probationer’s good conduct and prevent him from committing a further offence.
During the Order period, the Probation Officer supervises and supports the probationer in partnership with the family and community. The probationer is motivated to enhance his human capital by learning pro-social thinking and gaining new skills; and increase his social capital by building positive social networks, restoring relationships and making amends. This enables and empowers him to desist from crime, increase well-being and contribute to society.
