depticon2Department Description

Mission Statement: 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 Office of Probation and Correctional Alternatives (OPCA), thereby enhancing public safety through the reduction of recidivism.

Probation staff members work in the interest of the public and with the understanding that excellence is expected in the performance of our duties. The public entrusts the Probation Department with the responsibility of affecting long-term behavioral change and to hold accountable those offenders whose behavior places them at risk of re-offense.

Programs and Services:

The Adult Services Unit
The Adult Services Unit completes probation reports for the Courts in Saratoga County which aid the Courts in determining the appropriate dispositions for offenders. In addition, the Probation Department provides supervision of the adult offenders who are placed on probation.

Juvenile Services Unit
The Juvenile Services Unit provides three major services:

  1. Intake, where juveniles are diverted from the Family Court and handled through the Probation Department.
  2. The completion of Pre-Dispositional Investigations of juveniles referred to Family Court
  3. The supervision of juveniles sentenced to probation, Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal (ACOD), or Conditional Discharge.

Community safety is the primary consideration in dealing with juveniles and rehabilitation of the juvenile is secondary.
