The Probation and Mediation Service is responsible for the organization and management of the sentence, arrangement and supervision of work placements (in this regard, the Probation and Mediation Service cooperates with municipalities, non-profit organisations, and health, social and educational institutions ) and for individual work with the offender during the sentence. Individual work with the client involves providing guidance and developing the offender’s motivation to comply with the punishment, monitoring the completion of the sentence and providing the court with progress reports. If other obligations have been imposed by the court, the Probation and Mediation Service is expected to encourage the client to observe these and ensure they are fulfilled. Apart from monitoring the offender, the probation officer provides them with support and helps them solve their current life problems, thus trying to reduce the relapse risk to a minimum.
