Message from the Director General

Ladies and gentlemen,

we all certainly look forward to what the new year 2022 will bring. We in the Probation and Mediation Service also hope that this will be a year that will allow a return to normal functioning of society, restore a positive mood among the people and will return the life and work to state without the necessary restrictions. This year, our organization is entering the next period of its operation. Last year, we commemorated the 20th anniversary of criminal justice, so we should no longer look back, but pursue new goals.

Of course, we will continue to work professionally with perpetrators and victims, helping to reduce recidivism, support positive changes in our clients’ lives, and help repair the harm that has occurred within the community. If necessary, you can always turn to us with confidence, because the Probation and Mediation Service has its center and staff in the territory of all judicial districts of our republic. I hope that we will continue to succeed in improving the practice of criminal justice and in contributing to the wider application of alternative punishments and restorative programs in our country.

Andrea Matoušková
