Mission Statement

The overall Department mission is to serve the courts by providing quality and meaningful investigations to assist the court in decision making, and to supervise those persons sentenced, under court order, in the community. Probation officers provide assistance and guidance to the offender so that he/she may be reintegrated into society in a productive and meaningful manner. The probation officer recognizes that probation, as a sentence, is a viable alternative to incarceration and that community safety is always the Department's main goal.
