Adult Probation and Parole services are designed to provide effective supervision to a diverse offender population. Our supervision goal is to enhance public safety by providing services that change behavior and result in reduced offender recidivism.
Adult probation/parole officers provide intake, assessment, referral and supervision services to individuals sentenced to County terms of probation and/or parole. In order to ensure appropriate supervision, offenders are classified and supervised based upon their assessed risk and need classification. Accurate assessment is the foundation for targeting offender service needs and making appropriate intervention referrals. Throughout the assessment, classification and case supervision process adult probation/parole officers engage clients through a positive reinforcement supervision model. Motivational interviewing, client engagement and case planning are primary activities probation officers use to develop positive working relationships with the offenders to increase the likelihood that they comply with and ultimately complete their term of supervision.
In addition, Chester County Adult Probation & Parole operates a number of specialized units designed for specific offender populations.
