ABSTRACT
The rise in crime rates and the consequent higher imprisonment rate have resulted in the overcrowding of many prisons, in general and both regionally and locally. Evaluations of existing institutional treatment programmes for inmates have not shown promising results in terms of successful offender reintegration or a reduction in recidivism. This situation has motivated many countries to develop various community sanctions along with measures and services for their implementation. Probation systems exist today in the majority of European countries and, regardless of different legal frames, very similar activities can be identified in different stages of criminal proceedings. With the creation of the Probation Act and the establishment of a Directorate for Probation, Croatia stands before a very extensive and demanding area and is faced with great expectations from citizens, politicians, professionals, victims and offenders.
