This Manual is intended for Kyrgyz probation officers and employees of the penitentiary systems of the Republic of Tajikistan and the Republic of Uzbekistan engaged in execution of punishments not related to imprisonment and other measures of criminal law. Particular attention in this manual is paid to international standards of work to ensure the rights and freedoms of persons serving sentences and other criminal law measures not related to imprisonment.
In addition to the basic approaches and work standards, the manual includes sections on conducting social and psychological assessments of convicted persons in order to identify their individual needs for resocialisation and rehabilitation. For example, it features a list of possible practical questions for employees of the penitentiary services in their professional activities.
This document was developed as part of a project “Strengthening the rule of law in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan” with financial support from the United Nations Democracy Fund.
