Our Mission:

"The Butte County Probation Department is committed to enhancing public safety through rehabilitation and accountability."

Formal Adult Probation Caseloads

Adult Supervision Unit

Supervising low to moderate risk offenders, Probation Officers utilize monthly mail-in forms, office appointments, and program referrals to ensure compliance with terms and conditions of probation.

Field Supervision Unit

Supervising high risk offenders—namely domestic violence, gang, and sex crimes—Probation Officers utilize routine office appointments and searches, drug testing, and treatment program partnership to ensure compliance with terms and conditions of probation.

Adult Treatment Unit

The Proposition 36 and Drug Court programs supervise offenders with substance abuse issues. Probation Officers utilize routine drug and alcohol tests, office appointments, and treatment program partnership to ensure compliance with terms and conditions of probation.


Mandatory Supervision

Mandatory supervision is defined as a court ordered period of time in the community under the supervision of Probation. A split sentence allows a judge to split the time of a sentence between a jail term and a period of supervision by Probation. Probation Officers utilize routine office appointments, employment services and treatment program partnerships to ensure compliance with terms and conditions of probation.





Court Investigations Unit

Probation Officers present the Superior Court with adult felony Pre-sentencing Investigation Reports after a plea is made and before sentencing. While preparing this report, the Officer gathers information about the defendant and the crime. At sentencing, the Judge will take into consideration the probation report’s recommendations.

Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP)/ Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Program

This unit is a high risk management supervision division in charge of juvenile and adult offenders. Using the most updated technology, four Deputy Probation Officers and one technician maintain a caseload and provide intensive supervision and ensure compliance with court orders and expectations.
