The Adult Probation Department focuses supervision efforts in a manner that ensures the safety of the community while fostering long-term, positive behavior change in probationers. In order for probationers to effectively become productive members of the community, they need to learn how to identify their behaviors and make choices that will have a positive impact on their futures. Holding probationers accountable for their actions is a critical function of Probation Officers. If you or a loved one are on probation, please view the Probationer’s Handbook for information that may assist in the successful completion of probation. Our Reentry Services Division provides specialized support to probationers reentering the community after having served a period of incarceration.
Standard Probation Supervision focuses on three goals which lead to the success of offenders. They are accountability, change, and community. Together, these activities provide a foundation where intervention reduces risk, and community involvement increases long-term success.
Intensive Probation Supervision (IPS)is a sentencing alternative for offenders who would otherwise have been incarcerated in the State Department of Corrections at initial sentencing or as a result of a technical violation of standard probation. IPS is designed to provide strict control, surveillance, and supervision in a manner which will restrict and monitor the probationer’s movement and activities in the community while emphasizing the payment of restitution to victims. If you or a loved one are on intensive probation please view the IPS Guide for information specific to IPS that may assist in the successful completion of probation.
Domestic Violence Program
The Domestic Violence Program is an intense supervision and treatment program designed for domestic violence offenders involved in partner abuse.
Sex Offender Program
The purpose of the Sex Offender Program is two-fold: First, to provide a means of external control through the increased supervision and surveillance of convicted sex offenders; Second, to provide a means for the offenders to develop internal control by engaging in intensive treatment to address any sexual deviancy. The incorporation of these controls is the basis of the containment approach to the supervision of sex offenders. This is based on the premise that the sex offender is responsible for the damage inflicted upon others and that they be held accountable for their thoughts and behavior.
