What is a Probation Department?

A probation department is responsible for monitoring the activities and behaviors of individuals who have been released from jail or prison after serving a sentence of confinement. This department is also responsible for supervising people who have been arrested, released, pending trial or awaiting other legal processes.

The probation department is also responsible for preparing sentencing reports and other documentation about criminal defendants for judges and prosecutors to help them determine appropriate sentences in criminal cases. The department relies on a variety of methods to supervise individuals, including electronic monitoring, visits to their homes and workplaces, and random drug testing.
