A Greeting from the President
Welcome to the County Chief Adult Probation & Parole Officers Association of Pennsylvania Website.
Within this website you will find important and useful information regarding the association’s mission, membership, and accomplishments.
Over the past several years the association, with its dedicated members, has made great strides toward advancing the field of adult probation and parole throughout the Commonwealth. Evidence-Based Practices for community corrections is one of the important areas where the association has progressed. At present, the association along with numerous stakeholders, is working to develop a statewide strategy to assist county probation departments with Evidence-Based Practices implementation. The implementation of these offender intervention principles is key reducing recidivism and making the best use of county probation department resources.
Additionally, the association is committed to providing its members with a “voice” regarding various issues that impact county adult probation departments. These issues include pending legislation, funding for county probation departments, offender supervision best practices, and standards by which probation departments are measured.
As we move forward, the association will continue to work hard to make the PA county adult probation system a force for positive change.
Again, thank you for visiting our website.
April Billet-Barclay, President
