Volunteer Probation Support Program

The Nineteenth Judicial Circuit has partnered with the College of Lake County to provide volunteers for both Adult and Juvenile Probation Services. In Adult, Volunteers have been used extensively over the years with General Field and DUI Group Reporting. The College has recruited, trained and coordinated Volunteer assignments which have included meeting one on one with probationers and helping with Group Reporting sign in. With the shift in format with Group Reporting, Volunteers are being looked at to be help in the probation office and also to be mentors helping with computer skills and job preparation among other possibilities. The Volunteer in Probation Program has been in existence for the past 40 years in 2014. It has undergone many changes but never has the need for these committed community volunteers and the service they provide lessened.
