Welcome to York and North Yorkshire Probation Trust
Our vision is to reduce reoffending by providing effective and efficient probation services which meet local needs.
York and North Yorkshire Probation Trust is a criminal justice agency, responsible for protecting the public in York and North Yorkshire by punishing and rehabilitating offenders. Across the county we are working to reduce crime and to help build safer communities.
We are one of 35 probation trusts in England and Wales that makes up the full range of effective probation services. The Ministry of Justice has an overall responsibility for the probation services and is also responsible for courts, prisons and constitutional affairs.
Our aims are:
- protecting the public
- reducing reoffending
- the proper punishment of offenders in the community
- ensuring offenders are awareness of the effects of crime on their victim and the public
- rehabilitation of offenders
As a critical player in the Criminal Justice System we work alongside other criminal justice agencies to achieve our aims: North Yorkshire Police, Prison Service, the Courts, Crown Prosecution Service, and many other partner agencies throughout York and North Yorkshire.
