Body

DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION

Probation Department recommending the Board receive a presentation on Probation Supervision Week and approve and authorize the Chair to sign a Proclamation recognizing July 15-21, 2018 as Probation Supervision Week in the County of El Dorado.

 

Probation Officers and the staff that support the mission of the Probation Department are dedicated public servants who identify with a distinctive professional tradition focused on the reduction of recidivism and promoting pro-social behaviors of individuals involved in the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

 

Probation professionals operate with a particular set of skills, experiences and trainings that culminate in the delivery of a unique and necessary service designed to provide public protection and enhance the lives of families in the community.

 

For this reason the El Dorado County Probation Department would request the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors acknowledge by proclamation the week of July 15th through 21st as Probation Supervision Week in El Dorado County.

 

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Each year, the Probation and Parole industry identifies one week in the month of July to recognize and highlight the work performed by corrections professionals and the impact and outcomes of the work they perform in detention institutions and in the community.

 

The American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) is an international association composed of members from the United States, Canada and other countries actively involved with probation, parole and community-based corrections, both in adult and juvenile sectors.  All levels of government including local, state/provincial, legislative, executive, judicial, and federal agencies are counted among its constituents. 

 

Each year, APPA selects a week to acknowledge the work done by probation, parole and community corrections.  This year, APPA has identified July 15-21 as Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Week.
