Probation Officers

The Whitfield County Juvenile Court Probation Officers are the direct contact agents with the youths on probation. Probation Officers are assigned to children who attend specific schools so that the officers work in a small geographic area. The officer's job is to help the child succeed on probation, but they are also responsible for enforcing the directives issued by the Court.

The Probation Officers perform frontline duties by visiting with the youthful offenders at school, home and other locations on any given day or night to ensure compliance with the Court's orders. Any violation of the Court's orders by a juvenile offender is referred to the assigned Probation Officer for recommendation to the Court for consequences. The Juvenile Probation Officer is required to maintain a detailed record of contacts and conduct of their assigned juvenile offender.
