Lake County celebrates Probation, Parole & Community Supervision Week

RELEASE DATE: July 11, 2008

TAVARES — Lake County encourages residents to remember the important role Probation Officers play in the community during Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Week, July 13-19, 2008.

“Probation Officers in Lake County are dedicated and caring individuals who work to make our neighborhoods safer and more vibrant places to live and raise families,” said Tony Deaton, Lake County Probation Director. “These professionals are on duty each and every day to assist juvenile and adult offenders in becoming better citizens with productive lives.“
 
The eight Probation Officers with the Probation and Court Services Division currently provide supervision to over 1200 offenders placed on probation for traffic and misdemeanor offenses, and ensures their compliance with court-ordered sanctions. Division staff promotes a crime-free lifestyle by requiring offenders to be employed, perform community service, make restitution and attend counseling. During the month of June, 2,798 hours of community service were completed by offenders and $5,641 in restitution was collected.
 
Lake County’s Probation Officers are committed to promoting services and programs that meet the needs and interests of crime victims and the community, and provide services and programs that offer opportunities for offenders to become law-abiding citizens.
