HOURS: 9 am - 5 pm
The mission of the Saratoga County Probation Department is to affect positive change in juvenile and criminal offender behavior through the use of evidence-based probation practice, consistent with the rules and regulations set forth by the New York State Division of Probation and Correctional Alternatives (DPCA), which enhances public safety through the reduction of recidivism.
Probation staff members work not for the department, but for the public who expect excellence from their public servants. The public entrusts the probation department with the responsibility of affecting long-term behavioral change in the wayward members of their communities and to hold accountable those offenders whose behavior places them at risk.
