July 18-24 proclaimed Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week
The board of commissioners has declared July 18-24 as Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week.
Ramsey County's probation officers and assistant probation officers in Community Corrections supervise adults and juveniles at local correctional facilities and residential treatment programs, as well as people who are under supervision while living in our community. The department is guided by operating principles including: helping people change, offering opportunity, providing accountability and ensuring equity.
Probation officers provide a number of essential services including community monitoring and intensive supervision, but also investigations for the courts, risk and needs assessments, cognitive behavioral programs, employment referrals, counseling, re-entry services and more. The county employs over 500 full time and intermittent staff.
Commissioner McDonough read the proclamation with staff from Community Corrections offering remarks. Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week is an annual recognition event initiated by the American Probation and Parole Association.
