Lake County observes probation supervision week

RELEASE DATE: July 18, 2006

TAVARES — The Lake County Board of County Commissioners presented at its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday a resolution declaring the week of July 16 as Probation, Parole & Community Supervision Week.

“Jurisdictions across the United States are observing probation and parole officers this week to recognize the significant role they play in the criminal justice system,” said Tony Deaton, Director of the Lake County Probation Services Division.

According to the American Probation and Parole Association, probation, parole and community supervision professionals exhibit care and concern for victims of crime while at the same time holding offenders accountable. One day they may play the part of a counselor, the next they are enforcing the rules of an offender’s supervision. They are problem solvers, crime-prevention specialists, motivators, educators, facilitators and often times they are the only support system an offender may have.
