To investigate cases of juvenile delinquency or adult applicants for probation; and to supervise and counsel juveniles and adults on probation.
This is the entry level class in the Deputy Probation Officer series. This class is distinguished from the Probation Assistant by performance of the full scope of sworn probation duties, such as search and arrest and is distinguished from the journey level by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties in both court and field supervision of adults or juveniles. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically used as a training class for Probation Department division assignment, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks. This class is flexibly allocated with Deputy Probation Officer II – Field.
Receives immediate to general supervision from a Supervising Deputy Probation Officer - Field or Probation Manager; may receive technical and functional supervision from a Senior Deputy Probation Officer – Field.
