Probation for justice is undoubtedly this institution that plays a special role and importance in open system rehabilitation. Improving the functioning of increasing crime situation, including juvenile delinquency requires determined eff orts of social and system solutions. A very important element of governmental and non-governmental organizations for protecting the safety is to direct attention to the problems of crime prevention. As a society bear huge fi nancial outlay to maintain institutions that do not always meet the expectations of society in terms of the eff ectiveness of social reintegration. It seemed that the introduction of the Court Probation Act of 27 July 2001 in micro and macro scale solves the problems of Polish justice and contributes to the further development of this institution. Institutional dependence deprives its autonomy and the possibility of permanent structures to adapt to the real needs of the probation system. Undoubted success of the Act is to change the priorities in the performance of tasks by probation offi cers. In the fi rst place was the impact of educational and social integration, then diagnostic, preventive and controlling. Although in this case, there is serious doubt if the legislator took into consideration the properly realized tasks. Generally dominated by trend that imprisonment should be used as long as necessary from the point of view of the social reintegration and assurance of security of liberation society. Therefore, one of the challenges of modern restorative rehabilitation of probation is to build a system based on the solutions of other countries.
