Probation and After Care Service is a government department in the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, State Department for Correctional Services. We provide advisory reports to court and other agencies for the purpose of determining bail and bond terms and for decision-making on sentencing and release of offenders. We also supervise, resettle, reintegrate and rehabilitate offenders serving various non-custodial sentences in the community. In the management of offenders, we work with victims of crime and the public in ensuring public-safety. We invite you to know more about us as you peruse our website.

On 21st January 2020, PACS joined various stakeholders to validate the Child Care and Protection Officers Program (CCPO) Training Module 1 at a workshop in Nairobi. The CCPO program was started in 2009 to enhance the coordination of Juvenile Justice Agencies for better treatment and care of child offenders. This was after a survey was conducted among the agencies to assess the knowledge and skills of officers in handling child offenders. The workshop aimed at revising the first Module, which draws its guidelines from various Juvenile Justice Agencies and international instruments for eventual implementation.
