Walk in Services

NICRO provides a walk-in service to members of the public at its offices, where referrals, recommendations and information is made available.

Tracking and Aftercare

“Aftercare” is a period of extended supervision and service delivery provided for one year after a person exits a service This includes such components as regular contact with a case manager, monitoring of school/job attendance, and referral to additional support services as appropriate. Aftercare is based on the notion that a continuation of service provision, social controls and support in the community is essential to maximizing the potential for long-term positive behavioral change.

This service is incorporated into all NICRO programmes. All offenders receive aftercare for up to 12 months and undergo progress tracking.
