Probation is ordered by the courts and allows the offender to serve their sentence in the community, subject to conditions prescribed in a probation order.

The supervisory role of a probation officer and parole officer is to:
  • prepare reports for courts and the Parole Board
  • monitor and enforce probation and conditional sentence orders, and parole certificates
