Chief Probation Officers of California Celebrates Black History Month
Each February, Black History Month serves to reflect on Black history in America. We are proud of probation’s diversity, equity, and inclusion, with more than 20% of deputy probation officers in California being African American. That diversity extends to gender (51% are women) and other races (72% of deputy probation officers are non-white). In this video, Chief Probation Officers of California are taking time to sit down with chiefs to discuss the importance of Black History Month. They touch on their experiences working in probation as a person of color, delivering culturally-relevant services to diverse communities, and how that serves to enhance public safety over the long term.
