Misdemeanor Probation Office

Accountability

Paying Back the Community
This is accomplished by focusing on community safety and working with the probationer to restore them to a law abiding status. Probationers are offered the opportunity to live and work in the community while addressing their needs and paying back the community in a number of ways. Community repayment varies and can include court fines, crime victim fund contributions, and community service. Probation is a privilege granted by the court as an alternative to jail time.
