What we do

The main strands of our work are to:

  • Assess convicted offenders and annually prepare over 10,000 reports for Courts, Parole Commissioners and others.
  • Supervise over 4,400 offenders subject to a range of court orders and licences at any given time.
  • Deliver behavioural change programmes for offenders in custody and in the community covering areas
    such as violent offending, sexual offending and drug and alcohol misuse.
  • Provide a Victim Information Scheme to any person who has been the direct victim of a criminal offence where the offender is subject to supervision by PBNI.
  • Work alongside statutory and other partners to minimise the risk of harm posed by offenders.

For more information about what we do please select an item from the sub-menu on the left.  We have also developed a video to help explain the work we do within the Courts, Prisons and the Community. The video contains interviews with PBNI staff, Judges, Community Partners, ex-offenders and can be viewed by selecting the play button below.
