The Parole and Probation Administration (PPA) has exceeded its performance target for calendar year 2015.

In a report submitted by the Planning Division to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring, Information and Reporting System on February 20, 2016, the PPA surpassed its 2015 performance target in terms of all its major output namely Investigation, Supervision and Rehabilitation.

Under Investigation output, the Agency handled 25,953 cases, which were 2,027 higher than its target of 23,923. Meanwhile, a 99.49% accomplishment rate against its target of 94.66% was obtained on probation investigation recommendations sustained by the courts or Board of Pardons and Parole (BPP). This was derived from the 90.08% accomplishment rate gained by the Agency on investigation reports completed and forwarded to the same offices.

Under Supervision aspect of the Agency’s mandate, a significant increase was recorded on the number of supervision cases handled. In 2015, 50,798 clients were supervised wherein 98.32% complied with the terms of probation and parole conditions. It is worthy to note that 100% rate of supervision recommendations sustained by the courts and BPP was accomplished by the Agency against its target of 91.26%.

In Rehabilitation aspect of the PPA output, 2,063 volunteer probation assistants (VPAs) were recruited for the same period, which resulted to 9,446 total VPAs currently supervised by the Agency. Out of these VPAs, 83.93% was mobilized for the rehabilitation program of clients, which was 8.77% above the target. On the other hand, the Agency delivered an additional 291,222 intervention services to clients from its target of 262,382 that totaled to 553,604. This was the result of successful linkages to various local government units, inter-agency cooperation and generous assistance of non-government, civic and religious organizations.
