The Clinton County Probation Office staff supervises juvenile and adult offenders sentenced to a term of court supervision or probation by the Clinton County Court system. Conditions of probation may include requirements such as mental health/ alcohol/drug counseling, random drug testing, restitution, public service work, or electronic monitoring of home confinement. 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.
