Standard Probation


Probationers under Standard Probation Supervision are supervised according to their risk to re-offend. Based on the Court-ordered Conditions of Probation as well as completed assessments, referrals are made to internal and community providers for needed services such as substance use treatment, employment services, and education needs. By targeting areas that have contributed to criminal behavior, Probation Officers are able to assist probationers in effecting positive behavior change.  Attendance and progress in treatment is monitored closely to ensure that intervention reduces risk to re-offend.
