MINISTERE DE LA JUSTICE
In its contribution to the general objective of public safety, the prison service has a dual role :
– supervising administrated persons ( execution of sentences)
– preparing them for rehabilitation and reducing the risks of reoffending ( provide rehabilitation programmes and a follow up through training, employment and medical care).
In an open environment, the probation officers’ role is to supervise and advise prisoners and guide them towards the appropriate organisations.
Combating radicalization is a major challenge for the French prison administration, which must rely on families to better support those who are detained for terrorism or who are found to be radicalized. Families are often a positive resource.
