THE ROLE OF THE 10TH DISTRICT COURT PROBATION DEPARTMENT

The probation department conducts pre-sentence investigations before sentencing on criminal cases and makes recommendations to the judges about which sentence is most appropriate. Pre-sentence investigations consist of an interview with the defendant, a criminal history review, and an assessment of needs including substance abuse and/or mental health treatment. If a defendant is placed on probation, a Probation Case Manager will supervise the probationary period and monitor compliance with the court's orders, including a treatment plan developed with a treatment provider if required.

10th District Court Probation supervises all individuals placed in Sobriety Treatment Court, Veterans Treatment Court and Mental Health Treatment Court.
