The Mission of the Probation Department is to promote the health and safety of El Dorado County by conducting investigations for the Court, enforcing Court Orders, ensuring victim's rights, engaging in prevention partnerships, and facilitating the resocialization of offenders, while maintaining integrity and professionalism.
Recommend and enforce Court-ordered sanctions for offenders, including the detention of juvenile offenders and the arrest of adult offenders; provide supervision and monitoring of offenders; prevent and reduce criminal activity by developing and implementing strategies from early intervention through suppression.
Proactively seek and maximize all opportunities to positively impact the behavior of offenders by providing opportunities for educational and vocational services, and access to health and mental health services that will build upon the strengths and capabilities of offenders, their families, and communities.
