The NYC Department of Probation supervises certain defendants after a conviction as a result of trial or by a guilty plea. Eligible defendants may be placed on probation by a judge for a specific period of time in lieu of or, in addition to, incarceration. Probation sentences range from one to three years for a misdemeanor to up to five years for a felony.
Probation officers make sure that offenders meet any special conditions set by the judge, including orders of protections, restitution, community service, and drug treatment.
The NYC Department of Probation does not believe probation is an appropriate sanction for persons convicted of domestic violence.
The mission of the New York City Department of Probation is to protect the community by intervening in the lives of offenders, holding them accountable, and serving as a catalyst for positive change. The Department acts in collaboration with the community and other justice partners, providing information and services to the courts, giving victims a voice in the justice system, and helping to strengthen families.
The NYC Department of Probation provides direct supervision through programs and other monitoring services.
Executive assistants based in each borough may look up the name of the offender’s Probation Officer.
