July 21-27 proclaimed Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week
The board of commissioners has issued a proclamation in support of July 21-27 as Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week.
Ramsey County has approximately 200 probation officers and 125 assistant probation officers in Community Corrections who supervise juveniles and adults. This includes individuals who are supervised at local correctional facilities or residential treatment programs, and others 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.
Pretrial, Probation and Parole Week is an annual recognition event initiated by the American Probation and Parole Association.
