Probation and Parole in Queensland focuses on the delivery of supervision and intervention to offenders subject to community-based orders. The role, functions and activities of Probation and Parole staff are prescribed in the Corrective Services Act 2006.Probation and Parole staff ensure that the conditions of court-based and parole board orders are enforced and, where prescribed, reparation activities in the community are fulfilled. Staff also provide advisory services to the courts and parole boards. Probation and Parole staff aim to protect the community and reduce recidivism by supervising offenders in the community in which they live. This is a key focus for Queensland Corrective Services, and can be seen by the ongoing increase in reporting centres and District Offices across Queensland, including regional locations and the lower gulf.
Probation and Parole staff, including case managers and specific program staff, encourage offenders to adopt more pro-social attitudes and behaviours.
