Community Corrections

Washington County Community Corrections provides probation and parole supervision of both adults and juveniles in the community. Community-based supervision is an effective tool in achieving public safety in a fiscally responsible manner. While some people need to be confined to jail or prison others can continue to contribute to society as employees, parents, and citizens. These individuals can be held accountable by paying restitution to their victims, participating in drug testing, Sentence to Service work crews, treatment programs, and by losing various freedoms while continuing to support themselves and their families.
