Zonguldak Provincial Directorate of Probation is a public body and sub-unit of Republic of Turkey Ministry of Justice. Our directorate follow-up convict people in society who is judged from probation measures. We generally try to rehabilitate them and by this means reintroduce convict people to society. Before 2016 June, we didn’t use different ways about sex offenders for their rehabilitation. We efectuate specific studies through the new regulations which is published in June 2016. This regulations comprise;
Medical treatment (stood or inpatiant treatment, drug or drug-free treatment),
Be banned from victim of sexual offender’s residential area,
Be banned from the organizations where the victim lives,
Be banned from jobs and activities which is related children
“Medical Treatment” is a psychiatric or pharmacological treatment about sexual offender which approved by the relevant committee. Our directorate has started to practice these new methods.
