Due to the COVID pandemic, we are encouraging individuals to appear remotely via Zoom videoconferencing rather than coming to the Courthouse and appearing in person for court proceedings. To appear remotely, please follow the instructions provided with your court notice. In addition to remote court proceedings, many court services are available on-line without having to come to the courthouse. More information is available on the Coronavirus Information Page. As reflected in our mission statement, this is achieved through field-based supervision and treatment of offenders. In addition, the department assists the Court in sentencing through the completion of pre-sentence investigations on offenders as directed.
