What to expect while being supervised

Supervision of offenders on formal probation differs according to the crime and caseload they are placed on. Terms and Conditions of Probation for each case are set by Butte County Superior Court and enforced by the Officer.

Routine office appointments

Residence verifications


Travel restrictions

Drug and alcohol tests

Treatment program enrollment

Weapons restrictions


are common tools Probation Officers use to ensure terms and conditions of probation are followed.

Fines and fees owed by offenders will be outlined in the Terms and Conditions. These can include victim restitution fines, lab testing fines, program fees, court fees, and state fees.

Fines and fees are paid at Superior Court’s Court Compliance. They can be reached at 530.538.7014.



It is the policy of Butte County Probation to respect the fundamental privacy rights of individuals. Probation Officers conduct searches in strict observance of the constitutional rights of persons being searched.
