County Supervisors, Probation Chief Jerry Powers, and Probation Staff
Mayor Michael D. Antonovich welcomed Los Angeles County Probation Chief Jerry Powers and members of the Department to celebrate Probation Services Appreciation Week in Los Angeles County.
Annually, the men and women of the Probation Department supervise over 82,000 adult and 27,000 juvenile probationers.
Probation officers are community corrections professionals charged with preserving the safety of county residents and maintaining contact with offenders to ensure compliance with the terms of their probation.
The Probation Department also works hard to provide offenders with rehabilitative treatment, aftercare services, and mentoring to prepare them for reentry into their communities.
