Deputy Probation Officer Program

The Deputy Probation Officers (DPO) Program allows volunteers to work one-on-one with adult and juvenile offenders in a variety of probation services. These volunteer positions offer an excellent opportunity for citizens that are interested in exploring a career in the Criminal Justice System and/or those wanting to make a difference in their community.

DPO’s may supervise an adult or juvenile caseload on individuals who have been granted Probation supervision to ensure Court ordered compliance.

Specific duties may include but are not limited to: meeting with adult defendants and juveniles; staffing cases; writing Pre-Sentencing Investigations (PSI's), warrants, summons, terminations, extensions and special reports to the Court; completing Level of Service Inventories (LSI's), Alcohol evaluations and case plans; and, making referrals to treatment agencies. In short DPO's maintain adequate supervision of clients, just as a Probation Officer would.
