In pursuit of these services, Probation has a role in enhancing community safety and reducing recidivism. 


We seek to aid those under our supervision to return to being productive members of our community by helping them to address goals related to:

  • Education
  • Family or parenting skills
  • Job skills
  • Mental Health
  • Substance Abuse
  • Other issues identified cooperatively by the Probation Officer and the defendant/respondent

Sentencing Court

These goals are achieved under the supervision of the sentencing Court. Probation is a cost effective alternative to incarceration or detention, which holds offenders accountable for their actions and seeks to make victims whole through the collection of Restitution and/or other remediation measures.
