Probation Officer Orientation

In accordance with the minimum qualifications for probation officers that became effective on July 1, 1984, a probation officer is required to attend the orientation program within one year from the date that he/she is employed. However, the Judicial Center recommends that a new officer attend within the first 6 months of employment.

The orientation program will feature presentations on adult and juvenile supervision, interviewing and report writing, and special populations.  Faculty will consist of judges, probation officers and other professionals.

Chief probation officers can register new probation officers to attend orientation through Wufoo.  The chief probation officer must affirm that the salary of the new probation officer complies with the Schedule of Minimum Salaries for Probation Officers (both full-time and part-time).  A confirmation will be emailed to the new probation officer, with details on location, start times, and hotel reservations.  Part-time officers attending orientation must have orientation expenses (room, lunch and materials) paid for by the sending county.

Lunch will be provided at the orientation, but conferees are on their own for all other meals.  The Judicial Center will not reimburse mileage.  Dress at the orientation is business casual (a light sweater or jacket is recommended for the conference room).

To view orientation dates, go to the Probation Calendar.
