THE PROBATION SERVICE
The Probation Service is an agency within the Department of Justice and Equality. We play an important role in helping to reduce the level of crime and to increase public safety by working with offenders to help change their behaviour and make good the harm done by crime. We are the lead agency in the assessment and management of offenders in our community.
The European Social Funding Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020, which is co-funded by the Irish Government, continues to fund five of our partner Community Based Organisations.
