The Findlay Municipal Court’s Probation Department oversees all persons placed on probation as the result of a traffic or criminal conviction. It is the goal of probation to monitor compliance with the sentence imposed by the Judge, thereby reducing involvement of further criminal activity.
Probation Officers assess the needs of the defendant and monitor the compliance of their terms of probation, as determined by the Court. Conditions of Probation will include, but not limited to; a curfew, regular probation meetings,and random drug/alcohol screening. Additional rules can include paying restitution, alcohol and mental health assessments, counseling, and community service as ordered by the court. Defendants are assigned to a Probation Officer who will supervise the conditions of their probation and provide assistance in complying with those conditions.
The pre-trial Officer supervises individuals who are placed on pre-trial supervision as a condition of bond. This may include SCRAM alcohol monitoring, GPS monitoring and drugs testing to ensure compliance with Court orders. The pre-trial Officer will also complete pre-sentence investigations on defendants, as ordered by the Court.
The Compliance Officer oversees all persons assigned to complete various Court ordered programs such as, but not limited to:
- Community Service
- Drivers Intervention Program
- Victims Impact Panel
- S.T.A.R. Program (Survivors Talking About Recovery)
- Domestic Violence Program / Anger Management
- Underage Consumption Program
