Probation is a sentence or disposition imposed by a criminal court or family court. In general, probationers are released in the community without serving a period of local incarceration, although in certain circumstances they may be sentenced to both imprisonment (local) and probation; the sentence of incarceration shall be a condition of and run concurrently with a sentence of probation. Probation is a county function in New York State, although in New York City, the probation department is run by the City government. The Division of Probation and Correctional Alternatives (OPCA) provides regulatory oversight and funding to local probation departments.
Parole is a portion of a correctional sentence served in the community following a term of incarceration in state prison. For offenders serving an "indeterminate" sentence, the NYS Board of Parole makes decisions whether an eligible state inmate is granted or denied parole. Offenders sentenced to a "determinate" prison term generally are released after serving 6/7 of their sentence. The period of supervised release following incarceration for such offenders is known as "Post-Release Supervision." Parole or Post-Release Supervision is intended to assist offenders in returning to society. These offenders are supervised in the community by parole officers, who are state officials employed by the NYS Division of Parole.

If your child has been issued an appearance ticket by an arresting agency in Cayuga County (Auburn Police Department, Cayuga County Sheriff's Office, or New York State Police), this department will also get a copy of the appearance ticket.
Please follow the instructions on the appearance ticket. If it says to await contact by the Probation Department, but it feels like it's too long and you haven't heard from us, you may call our main number at 315-253-1246 and ask to speak with the Juvenile Probation Officer, or in their stead, the Juvenile Probation Officer Supervisor. *If your address, phone number, or custodial guardian of the child changes in the meantime, please contact the Probation Department immediately to keep us up to date.
Please note that it is not uncommon for a week or two to pass between when your child receives the appearance ticket and when we receive our copy and are able to open a case in our system.
