Performance Reviews
Following devolution of justice and policing on 12 April 2010 the Department of Justice (DOJ), which is a Northern Ireland Department, came into existence and was established by the Department of Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2010. It has a range of devolved policing and justice functions, set out in the Northern Ireland Act 1998 (Devolution of Policing and Justice Functions) Order 2010. Through the DOJ we will be accountable to the Northern Ireland Executive and the Assembly. The role of the Department is to support the Minister for Justice to help keep the people of Northern Ireland safe.  An Annual Report and Accounts is published and laid before Parliament. The Permanent Under Secretary of State, who is the Accounting Officer of the Northern Ireland Office, has designated the Director as NDPB Accounting Officer for the Probation Board for Northern Ireland.  The Director of PBNI is a member of the Criminal Justice Board in Northern Ireland.

We are also committed to:

  • Meeting the requirements of section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 and the current legislation on human rights, disability discrimination, data protection, freedom of information and public records.
  • Contributing to the achievement of government aims as expressed in the public service agreement targets published by the Northern Ireland Office.

Public Service Agreements
PBNI is committed to contributing to the achievement of government aims as expressed in the public service agreement targets published by the Northern Ireland Office.  The full details of the NIO Public Service Agreement can be found on the NIO website.
