Community-based Rehabilitation

Community-based Rehabilitation

MSF has in place a range of community-based rehabilitative programmes for the rehabilitation of children and youth at risk of delinquency as well as children, youth and adults who have committed offences.
  • Probation is a community-based sentencing option by the Court for people who have committed offence(s). Probationers are supervised by a Probation Officer or a Volunteer Probation Officer for a period between 6 months to 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.
  • Community Service Order and Weekend Detention Order are examples of other options available to the Court.
  • The Integrated Service Providers (ISPs) oversee the Triage system, Guidance Programme, Enhanced Streetwise Programme and the Youth Enhanced Supervision scheme.
  • The triage system aims to assist in the early identification and diversion of youth offenders from the criminal justice system for upstream work.
