Community Corrections serves juvenile and adult clients by holding them accountable for their offenses while helping them develop social skills. The department works in the community. Probation officers supervise clients where they live, go to school or work, and in other community locations. Community Corrections works with law enforcement, prosecutors and courts to maximize accountability and public safety.
Probation is just one area of work. Staff also provides:
- Truancy diversion
- Bail evaluations
- Intake and assessments
- Pre-sentence investigations and other court services
- Victim restitution investigations
- Community Work Service (CWS)
- Sentencing to Service (STS)
- Work Release
- Electronic home monitoring and conditional release
- Client cognitive groups
- Other interventions
For juvenile clients, the county operates a 40-bed secured facility and day treatment programs. It also uses the fully accredited in-house Riverside School to provide education.
On average, 11,300 probationers receive services each year.
