is a sentence alternative that allows the offender to live and work in
their community under the supervision of a probation officer. This
decision is made by the presiding judge after careful assessment of a
person's background, behavior and potential for success. The Probation
Department works under the direction of the Court Administrator and the
supervision of the Chief Probation Officer to provide investigation and
case management services to the Court.
The 50th District Court
Probation Department serves an exclusively adult misdemeanor offender
population. Although acting independently, our Probation Department
strives to maintain a professional working relationship with police
agencies, prosecutors, defense attorneys and treatment providers to
ensure the safety of the public. The Probation Department protects the
records of all probationers to insure privacy and to maintain the
highest level of professionalism.
Probation is a privilege, not a
right. While under the supervision of the Probation Department, the
person on probation must comply with the conditions ordered by the Court
including any rehabilitative, preventive or vocational/education
programs. You may also be required to pay restitution determined by the
prosecutor to crime victims, complete community service and submit to
random alcohol and/or drug testing.
