Community Corrections

Overview

The primary mission of Community Corrections staff is to protect the public by monitoring whether offenders on probation or community supervision are complying with their court-ordered conditions of supervision, and reporting non-compliance to the court or releasing authority when it occurs. Probation officers do this by making contact with offenders and their significant others and family. They meet with them at the office, at their place of employment and in the community through routine field visits, searches and unannounced visits to their homes.
