Probation professionals play an essential role in our justice system. They orchestrate important public safety services and help offenders to successfully reenter society and become productive citizens.
Working hand-in-hand with local law enforcement agencies and community groups, California’s probation departments provide rehabilitative programs, as well as crucial services and referrals to offenders. Their efforts promote offender accountability by assisting offenders to live lawful lifestyles. They also protect the rights of victims through prevention and helping to secure restitution.
Probation services are a vital component of our courts and communities, and are an important branch of our law enforcement. I encourage all Californians to join me in honoring their immense contributions to our state.
