Probation Officer Week Across the State, Rockland

This week is honor your probation officer in Rockland County. Well, if you’re lucky enough not to have such a close relationship with a probation officer, then join the county executive in honoring the work done by probation officers.

The Rockland County Probation Department is taking part in New York State’s Probation, Parole & Community Supervision Week from July 19 to 25, according to a news release from the Rockland County Executive’s Office.

The objective is to recognize the work that probation, parole and community supervision professionals do for public safety and to make our communities a safer place to live.

In that regard, Rockland County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef issued a Proclamation designating the week from July 19th-25th Probation, Parole & Community Supervision Week in Rockland County.

“We thank the staff in the Probation Department for their continuous hard work and vigilance in making our community a safer place to live,” Vanderhoef said in the news release. ”We also recognize other community corrections professionals here in Rockland and throughout the region for their efforts.”

The Probation Department, under the direction of Director Jacqueline Stormes, also will have an employee recognition day, as well as other events throughout the week, to show appreciation for staff members.
