In line with the German Congres on Crime Prevention a workshop on the aims, tasks and ways of proceeding in probation services with respect to crime prevention is taking place June 1st-3rd 2008.
The development in criminal policy in recent years has constantly given rise to new fields of work and has posed new challenges to the probation services in Europe. The protection of the public and, in relation to that, the involvement of probation services in crime prevention measures has been given special attention in the description of the aims of some national probation organisations.
For this reason the The Conférence Permanente Européenne de la Probation (CEP) together with the German Congress on Crime Prevention have decided to make "Probation meets Prevention" the subject of an international meeting. This includes the overviews "Probation meets Prevention" (Prof. Dr. A. van Kalmthout) and "Probation meets Prevention" (Prof. Dr. Hans-Jürgen Kerner), Presentations of two experiences ("Scandinavian Experiences in Probation and Prevention" by Erik Nadheim and "Risk oriented probation - a contribution to crime prevention" by Patrick Zobrist), Three parallel Group Sessions (Marketing and PR in Probation and Prevention, Community based networking in Probation and Prevention, Transition Management) as well as an adoption of a declaration.
Leo Tigges, Secretary General CEP, will present the summary, conclusion and declaration in his speech within the Annual International Forum.
