The Position
Parole & Probation Specialists perform technical duties in administrative functions and units, which do not require peace officer status. Duties include casework services, investigations, tracking and monitoring assigned parolees and probationers, pre-sentence investigations, determination of restitution and supervision fees, and referral services for the assigned unit. Positions in this series obtain and verify information; prepare and process case files and recommend appropriate action; and monitor offender activities. Incumbents are not Peace Officer's Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) certified and do not perform law enforcement functions such as conducting field inspections of offenders' worksite or residence, conducting surveillance, searches and arrests, or transporting prisoners to court or detention facilities.
Parole & Probation Specialist III's prepare pre-sentencing reports and recommendations at the fully trained level in the Court Services Unit, or serve as leadworker to other specialists in the Interstate Compact or Pre-Release Unit. This position is responsible for preparing Pre-Sentence Investigation Reports for the court prior to sentencing of an individual that has been convicted of a crime. Duties include researching and preparing criminal histories by interviewing convicted offenders to collect their social history. These interviews can occur in an office setting, via telephone, video conference or at the local jail.
