Probation - Adult Division
The primary responsibilities of the Adult Division are as follows:
- The supervision and case management of offenders on probation, Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) and Mandatory Supervision.
- Court services, which includes presentence investigations and other functions as requested and ordered by the Superior Court.
- Pretrial Services, which includes the provision of pretrial risk assessments for the Court and the supervision of persons ordered by the Court to pretrial supervision.
- Evidence based programming to assist offenders with addressing the behaviors which led to their criminal conduct, including Reentry Services and cognitive-behavioral based programs and interventions.
- Alternative sentencing programs, which include Electronic Monitoring, Remote Alcohol Monitoring and Adult Community Service.
- Victim services, which includes the enforcement of victim restitution orders and the enforcement of court ordered stay-away conditions.
Persons who have successfully completed probation, who have completed Mandatory Supervision or Post Release Community Supervision for a period of 1 year and have not reoffended, who are not currently on probation, parole or community supervision, and who are not currently pending any new criminal charges may be eligible to petition the Superior Court to have their record expunged. For more information, please contact the Inyo County Probation Department Adult Division and ask to speak to a Deputy Probation Officer.
The Adult Division offers two Alternative Sentencing Programs.
- Electronic Monitoring: To be considered for electronic monitoring, you must be referred by the Superior Court and you must be an Inyo County resident.
- Adult Community Service: To be considered for Adult Community Service, you must be referred by the Superior Court. The Probation Department will accept applicants who have been sentenced in other counties.
Program fees are based on a sliding scale and range from $5.00-$15.00 per day. The Superior Court may make a determination of inability to pay, which will be indicated on the Court order. For more information, please contact the Inyo County Probation Department Adult Division.
If you have been ordered to contact the Probation Department prior to your sentencing hearing, it is important that you do so within 1 business day. Your case will be assigned to a Deputy Probation Officer for presentence investigation. An appointment will be made for you with the Probation Officer for an interview, which you must appear at. The interview generally takes 1-2 hours. If you were given a Probation Social History Packet by the court, you must complete it and bring it with you to the interview. If you were not given a social history packet, you can print it here and complete it and bring it with you.
