The Private Probation Services Council was created to enforce the laws and rules governing private probation entities and private probation officers . To protect the public's health, safety, and welfare, private probation entities and private probation officers who fail to follow the law and rules of the profession are subject to disciplinary action by the Council.

 

The Council cannot recover or order the refund of any money or property to which you may be entitled. You should consult with your own attorney about a lawsuit in these matters. In some cases, the Council may revoke or suspend the license of the person against whom you are complaining (the respondent).

 

When the Council receives your complaint, it will be initially reviewed to determine if there is a possibility of imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare to the public. If there is, then this complaint will be forwarded directly to the Council's legal counsel. If not, a copy of this complaint will then be sent to the respondent asking for his or her response within 14 days. The complaint and the response will be forwarded to the Council's legal counsel for review. If additional information is necessary an investigation will be initiated. The Council's legal counsel will present the findings to the Council, which has the sole authority to determine the appropriate action. You will be notified of the Council's decision.

 

If the Board conducts a formal hearing in the matter, you may be subpoenaed to testify.
