Probation centre to be officially opened

Tue, 01 Dec 2020

The Island's Rehabilitation and Resettlement Centre will be officially opened at Tromode House next week.

Minister for Home Affairs Graham Cregeen will host the event at the centre which offers a range of support and interventions to help offenders address their behaviour and reintegrate into society.

In addition to housing the offices of the Probation Service, the residential facility also provides flexible and secure accommodation and a ‘stepping stone’ base for offenders released from prison on licence, subject to community sentences or on bail from the police or the courts. The facility offers supervised support, interventions to address offending behaviour, training and education as the residents prepare to transition back into the community.

Tromode House opened in October 2019 after the building, a vacant government property, was substantially upgraded and refurbished bringing together a range of services under one roof.

It is now home to the Community Supervision and Community Service teams which provide positive initiatives for those who serve their sentences in the community, and the Victim Liaison team which offers ongoing support and information to victims of crime and their families.

Tromode House will be opened in memory of the former Minister for Home Affairs the late Bill Malarkey, who championed the project during his time in office, and a plaque to mark the opening will be unveiled by his widow, Pamela Birnie Malarkey.
