The Probation Department monitors youth placed under Court supervision. The department’s goal is to provide a community based corrections program with consistent sanctions geared toward altering negative behavior.
Probation Officers make regular contact with the children, their parents, schools, agencies and others involved with the children to monitor and assist the probationers in making positive changes in their lives. The Court has three Probation Officers positions. These probation officers supervise approximately 150 children each year.
