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.

In 2020, Probation and After Care Service held its first ever national Children’s Competition involving children under the supervision of Probation Officers. The competition was a joint creative project with support from the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) through the Programme for Legal Empowerment and Aid Delivery in Kenya (PLEAD).

Children, aged 8 to 17 years, from August to September 2020 were invited to take part in the art project where they were to create their own artistic works expressing their experiences in the justice system.

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.


Probation and After Care Service on 5th December 2019 took part in the International Volunteer Day (IVD) celebrations in Nairobi. The volunteer festival, which was themed ‘Volunteer for an inclusive future’ drew participation from the National Government, Counties and Non-Governmental Volunteer Agencies. During the festival, the Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection Hon. Abdul Bahari acknowledged the support by the United Nations towards the development of the National Volunteer Policy. This Policy is an important tool that will help in providing guidelines on effective coordination and sustenance of volunteerism in the Country.
