Yes on Proposition 25
By Tanja Heitman

As a life-long professional in community corrections, I have seen firsthand how California’s current bail system is often unfair, costly, and doesn’t prioritize protecting public safety. We have a chance to change that on our November ballots by voting Yes on Proposition 25. A yes vote on Proposition 25 simply means a vote to uphold the well-balanced and thoughtful legislation, Senate Bill 10, passed by the State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Brown in 2018.


Two Local Veterans Graduated from Butte County Veterans Treatment Court

The Butte County Probation Department was proud to announce the graduation of two of their Veterans Treatment Court participants. Veterans continue fighting even after their military service has ended as they struggle with substance abuse, mental health, and reintegrating into civilian life. With the help of the Veterans Treatment Court team, these clients complete an intensive treatment program and period of probation supervision lasting at least 12 months.
