The Clinton County Probation Office supervises juvenile and adult offenders sentenced to a term of court supervision or probation by the Clinton County Court system. Probation officers monitor the offenders compliance to court-ordered conditions of probation, complete risk/needs assessments of the offender to determine appropriate supervision strategies, and develop case plans with the offender targeting areas of need for behavioral change. Probation officers work closely with law enforcement, school systems, and social service agencies in supervising offenders on probation.
The Clinton County Probation Department prides itself on working with offenders in a equitable and non-judgemental manner. We strive to assist each of our clients with identifying their risks and needs in order to build skills that will prevent recidivism and promote pro-social beliefs.
