The Probation Department fosters the essential system reform necessary to provide better outcomes for juvenile and adult offenders while better utilizing diminishing system resources. Probation will continue to build on its collaborative relationship with State and local juvenile and criminal justice stakeholders.
The Probation Department strives to make Nassau County a safer community by providing cost-effective, outcome-driven alternatives to incarceration that focuses on providing timely and appropriate evidence-based services to offenders that will mitigate the individual’s risk of recidivism. At the same time, Probation will hold fully accountable those offenders who do not benefit by the opportunity to achieve positive change in their lives.
