Mission Statement

To contribute to community well-being through positive engagement, connection to services, and support for those impacted by crime.

Department Budget Overview

Probation plays a crucial role in the judicial system, public safety, and local governance. The department is divided into four divisions: Adult, Juvenile, Pretrial and Juvenile Hall. Serving as an alternative to incarceration, the department actively works to reduce recidivism, support diversion and reentry, and enhance community safety. With a foundation in evidence-based practices and a commitment to diversity, equity, and responsiveness, the probation department collaborates with various organizations, contributing to positive change and the well-being of the individuals we serve. As a linchpin in the justice system, probation is dedicated to creating a safer, more rehabilitative, and humane environment to facilitate measurable results.
