County Probation and Parole
The 1965 amendment to the Parole Act (Act 501) significantly broadened the board’s powers and duties to include the administration of a Grant-In-Aid Program for the improvement of county adult probation and parole services, the establishment of Statewide probation and parole personnel and program standards, the provision of training for county adult probation and parole personnel, and the collection, compilation, and publication of county probation and parole statistical information. The Act also provides for an Advisory Committee on Probation to assist the board in formulating and reviewing standards for probation personnel and program services for the counties.
Although the board provides technical assistance, county adult probation and parole services are not under the jurisdiction of the board. Contact information for the individual offices may be found on the map.
