|~~Congratulations are in order...~~ |
As of April 1, 2012 our new leadership is:
|Who We Are: |
We are 101 PEF 502 Union Members of the Albany County Probation Department. We are comprised of Probation Assistants, Probation Officer Trainees, Probation Officers, Senior Probation Officers and Probation Supervisors.
Since 1841, the practice of probation and parole has played a vital role in our justice system. These professionals are a critical part of the public safety system.
Today in America, there are over 5 million adults on community supervision and most of these individuals are monitored by probation and parole officers. Monitoring may take the form of home contacts, drug testing, making sure the offender attends counseling sessions and helping offenders to find suitable housing and employment. Many officers also supervise offenders using electronic monitoring equipment which requires expert knowledge of newer technologies.
Community corrections has also been affected by the downturn in the economy. Budget shortfalls mean that probation and parole professionals must be creative in finding solutions to making sure those they supervise have the support needed to find jobs, housing and treatment. By collaborating with community leaders and volunteering their own time off work, many officers are making a difference while faced with expanding caseloads, additional responsibilities and work furloughs.
