Also in this work a big part of our attention was paid to the introduction of probation in Ukraine and, directly, the functioning of this institution in the state, its essence and features. Moreover, based on this, a thorough wide analysis of the legislation governing legal relations in this area was carried out, including the Law of Ukraine "On Probation" and the "Concept of Reforming Criminal Justice of Ukraine, approved by the Presidential Decree of April 8, 2008", "Concept of the State Target Program reform of the State Penitentiary Service for the period up to 2017, approved by the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine of November 26, 2008". And based on these regulations we could distinguish the types of probation were further investigated, such as: pre-trial probation, supervisory and penitentiary probation; and finally we described their main purpose and objectives.
