San Francisco Adult Probation – Breaking the Cycle
The San Francisco Adult Probation Department highlights its
Transitional Young Adult Program that utilizes evidence based
practices in order to meet the needs of probationers, increase
the likelihood of success, and positively impact public safety.
California Probation officers are diverse and highly educated
professionals with over 72% of probation officers identifying as
non-white, and 51% are women, the majority have four-year
degrees, and over half of probation departments have employed
former system-involved individuals.
California Probation is educated and trained to help protect
communities by carefully balancing justice-involved individuals’
need for accountability along with their need for the help and
hope required to safely leave the justice system
