The long overdue retirement of the previous Chief Probation Officer, and other dinosaurs, allowed needed reforms in that office. It's good to see real leadership getting the job done. Good job Mr. Hoover and the entire staff at Adult Probation!

B.S.. thats all i can say, the rate dropped when the economy dropped, there were no jobs avaialable for inmates to work, so probation was losing money by locking ppl up, when the economy rebounds, and its financially beneficial, the jail will be full agaian of petty probation violations..

You are a complete retard. Im guessing you are either a self proclaimed genius or somehow involved in the criminal justice system--on the wrong side. Your statement and way of thinking shows complete ignorance of the system and/or a victim mentally because of involvement in the system as a defendant or parent of one.

The programs that supposedly led to the decrease in re-arrest rates were began when the "dinosaurs" were still working at the Probation Department; give credit where credit is due.
