Adult Probation Services is responsible to the Court for supervising offenders and alleged offenders. Standard Probation, Sex Offender, Domestic Violence, DUI, Public Service, and Support units provide these services.
If an offender is sentenced to probation supervision, the conditions imposed by the Court are monitored by the probation officer and include office visits, facilitation of treatment, urinalysis testing, and criminal record checks.
Every effort is made to help offenders change their behavior so they will not continue to break the law. If these efforts fail, violators are referred back to court for punitive action that could include jail time.
