CPOC Connects: Exchanging Inspired Ideas in Probation

CPOC Connects: Exchanging Inspired Ideas in Probation

CPOC hosted a conversation with seven California Chief Probation Officers on September 24, 2021, to delve into a conversation and exchange information about unique and promising programs in California Probation. The Chiefs highlight how program formation happens, the hurdles that often need to be overcome for new program implementation and why these programs and others like them are so important to increase sustainable safety in our communities by helping justice-involved individuals with a careful balance of services, treatment, accountability and opportunity.
