The Greene County Probation Department is a county agency, established pursuant to Article 12 of the N.Y.S. Executive Law, under the supervision of the Greene County Legislature and the New York State Office of Probation and Correctional Alternatives.

The Greene County Probation Department has a full time staff of thirteen, which consists of a Director, a Probation Supervisor, three Senior Probation Officers, five Probation Officers, two Probation Assistants, and a Senior Clerk Typist.

The Probation Department is charged with ensuring community safety by providing intake, supervision, and investigation functions for the local criminal, family, and county court systems. The Probation Department also oversees the county’s community service program, which allows eligible offenders the opportunity to avoid a possible jail term by performing community service work for a public or non-profit agency.  

In addition, the Probation Department provides auxiliary services which include the collection and disbursement of restitution from both probationers and those convicted offenses that did not result in a probation sentence, including state prison inmates. As of November 1, 2013, we have 86 cases in which restitution collection/disbursement is the department’s only involvement with the offender.

As of November 1, 2013, the department is supervising a total of 480 convicted adults/adjudicated youthful offenders; 18 adjudicated Persons in Need of Supervision; 1 adjudicated Juvenile Delinquent; 1 adult offender found to have violated a support order; 1 Person in Need of Supervision in pre-adjudicatory status; and 10 Juvenile Delinquents and 11 Persons In Need of Supervision at an intake/diversion level. Probation supervision includes regular office reporting, home and field visits, alcohol and drug testing, and ongoing contact with police, employers, schools, service providers, family members, victims, and others.
