School Based Deputy Probation Officer Program

Overview


Deputy Probation Officers are assigned to high schools throughout the county. These school based probation officers:

  • Provide supervision to youth on formal and informal probation
  • Assist school staff within the classroom and during movements and breaks to maintain a safe campus
  • Collaborate with their school, the local police agency, the community based probation officer and local community-based organizations to coordinate truancy sweeps
  • Intervene when requested by school staff with individual students when that student’s behavior is problematic
