The New York City Department of Probation is a leader in community corrections, working within the criminal and juvenile justice systems and in the community to create a safer New York. Using Evidence-Based Practices (EBP), and a balance of enforcement, structure, treatment and support, we hold people on probation accountable and give them opportunities to forge new pathways so that they can move out and stay out of the justice system.
The New York City Department of Probation (DOP) is helping to build stronger and safer communities by supervising people on probation and fostering opportunities for them to move out of the criminal justice system through meaningful education, employment, health services, family engagement, and community participation.
This is documentation processed by the Probation Department and granted by the Court to anyone who has been convicted in New York State Court of any number of misdemeanors and no more than one felony, and who has not been sentenced to more than one year imprisonment. It removes bars to employment due to the conviction but it does not seal the case.
