York and North Yorkshire Probation Trust is a criminal justice agency, responsible for protecting the public in 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.
We are responsible for the delivery of reports about offenders to the courts and the supervision of offenders in the community. We also deliver programmes and interventions to rehabilitate offenders and reduce the chance of them committing crime in the future.
