OF THE PROBLEM OF FUNCTIONING OF THE PUBLIC COURT PROBATION SYSTEM
Languages of publication
The considerations concern questions pertaining to the functioning of court probation system as an auxiliary organ to the court. Apart from professional probation officers there are also public ones. The range of their tasks and rights is determined by legal acts as they run rehabilitation-oriented activity in the conditions of their wardens' personal freedom of living in society. Therefore it is important to realize the factors that condition the effectiveness of work of public probation officers. The method of diagnostic survey and the technique of questionnaire were used to collect the empirical material. The research comprised 82 public family probation officers responsible for supervising minors. It follows from the analysis of the empirical research findings that most of the examined public probation officers possess relevant pedagogical education and substantial practice in the field. The basic source of their pedagogical experience is their former activity as teachers and educators at outside-school institutions. While carrying out the supervision, they experience difficulty cooperating with those put in their charge. They consider cooperation with institutions which provide aid to the child and the family to be particularly useful in their carrying out the duties. In order to raise their skills in the scope of organization of the rehabilitation process they make use of trainings organized by professional court-based probation officers, as well as of other educational offers; they also read pedagogical literature.
