Adult Supervision

 

Deputy Probation Officers supervise adults granted formal probation by Superior Court. The largest concentration of probationers are those on probation for felony drug related offenses. Offenders who are considered to be of high risk to the community (sex offenders, gang members, violent offenders, etc.) are assigned to the High Risk Offender Unit where they are more closely monitored to verify compliance with Court imposed terms and conditions of probation. The High Risk Offender Unit was created to provide intensive supervision for public safety as well as offender’s rehabilitation.

Probation Officers initiate Court action if terms of probation are violated but of equal importance is assisting probationers in becoming law-abiding, productive members of the community by means other than incarceration.
