Porirua Probation Information Evening

12 May 2021

We're hosting a Probation Information Evening in Porirua on Tuesday, 18 May 2021 from 6pm and would love to see you there!

Probation officers (Āpiha Matakana) motivate and encourage people in our management to make positive changes in their lives and ensure they comply with their community-based sentences and orders.

Āpiha Matakana spend about 50% of their time face to face with offenders and the remaining 50% preparing reports and recommendations for the courts and New Zealand Parole Board.

Their work often means working closely with offenders’ whānau, programme facilitators and community work supervisors as well as other agencies including Work and Income, The Salvation Army, and Oranga Tamariki.
