Probation Aftercare Services
The Probation Aftercare Services is an arm of the Department of Correctional Services. Its mandate is to facilitate the rehabilitation of offenders who are given non-custodial sentences. It engages probation aftercare officers.
It functions in the courts of law, schools, the juvenile and adult correctional centres, and in the wider community. It enables the provision of confidential reports as requested by and for the courts in assisting the process of sentencing.
When non-custodial orders are made, offenders are placed under the supervision of probation aftercare officers and all efforts are directed to the primary goal of rehabilitation.
