The Probation Service is an agency of the Department of Justice and Equality. On behalf of the Department of Justice and Equality we work closely with offenders, families, the Court Service, the Irish Prison Service, An Garda Síochána, the Irish Youth Justice Service, the Office for the Minister for Children and many organisations in the community.
We deliver services to help protect the public, improve communities and to support offenders to integrate in their communities. We provide probation supervision, community service, anti offending behaviour programmes and specialist support services.
Our services are provided to both adult and young offenders, in the community and in custody and aim to stop them committing further offences.
