Probation Services

On April 1, 2007 the Mayor and City Council approved the establishment of a City Probation Service Office. The City Probation Office has probation and supervisory jurisdiction of all misdemeanor Offenses authorized by statute, including supervision, counseling services and collection for all monies to be paid by the defendant according to the terms of their sentence. The City Probation Office serves the Municipal Court.

 

What is Probation?

Probation is a court ordered sanction that allows a person to remain in the community under the supervision of a probation officer.  The conditions of this community-based supervision can vary.  It could include jail time, fines, restitution, community service or other sanctions.  Probation can also require a predetermined number of visits to their probation officer.  If a person does not follow the rules of their probation, they could go back before the judge and be sent to jail. Probation Officers are responsible for managing a large case load of adult probationers, and monitoring the status of probationers’ compliance with court ordered terms and conditions.

 

Mission

The mission of probation is to ensure public safety and promote offender reintegration in the community through proactive supervision and referral to community-based resources. To maintain a partnerships with law enforcement and other justice agencies to share information and expertise.  To work hand and hand with Community groups and social service agencies to provide offenders and victims with support and services needed.
