Deputy Probation Officers supervise adults who are granted formal probation by the Court. Officers supervise probationers convicted of felony crimes including driving under the influence, domestic violence, drug sales, sex offenses, gang and weapon related offenses, and other crimes. Officers regularly meet with probationers in the office and conduct home calls to ensure probationers are in compliance with Court ordered terms and conditions of probation. Often, probationers have a variety of barriers to successfully complete probation such as substance abuse, homelessness, and mental health issues. Officers assist probationers in overcoming these barriers by referring them to various services including community-based organizations and evidence-based programs. These services are focused on treatment specifically catered to each probationer and designed to help them achieve success on and off probation.
Officers initiate Court action if terms of probation are violated but of equal importance is assisting probationers in becoming law-abiding and productive members of the community by means other than incarceration.
The department’s K9 program provides narcotic detection and patrol services for all probation divisions and other law enforcement agencies.
