The Probation Department is the correctional services arm of the Superior Court whose effort is to ensure victims’ rights, offender accountability and provide appropriate rehabilitative services.  Probation Department staff provides evidence-based programs to assist in probationers’ successful re-entry into society.


Deputy Probation Officers (DPO) supervise juveniles and adults on probation.  While Juvenile Field Services DPOs recommend appropriate dispositions for juvenile offenders to preserve the family unit; Adult Field Services DPOs investigate and supervise adult offenders. Both services are in efforts to reduce recidivism.
