The Adult Probation Department provides both investigation and supervision services
to the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court of Oakland County. The Department deals exclusively with an adult felony offender
In recent years, Adult Probation has engaged in an aggressive effort to focus policy makers on the need to view prison and jail as a finite resource, to be used for only the most chronic and violent offenders. In this regard, they have urged the widespread use of alternative programs for certain eligible low level offenders at the time of sentencing. Additionally, they have developed and refined an array of programs specifically targeting probation violation behavior.
The results have been significant. During 2001, the Oakland County Probation Department maintained prison commitment levels a full four-percent below the statewide commitment rate. Further, they have maintained stable jail population levels locally, with many offenders successfully completing appropriate treatment alternatives. By utilizing the departments programming, further dramatic results are expected.Contact:
