The Nevada County Probation Department has developed a new program to track and assist prisoners coming to the county under AB109 the realignment of state prisoners. Deputy Probation Officer Pamela La Fountain says a new Probation Department Day Reporting Center is now open to deal with the post release community supervision offenders that are being released from prison, and who, under the old system would have been on parole. She says they have created a one stop shop to monitor the ex-felons and help them take control of their lives.
“Some of them have been away for a while, things have changed, they need to get their social services taken care of. They have educational goals that they would like to meet, getting their fines and fees paid off, dealing with child support, getting their license back; these are all services we can assist them with in one place.”
The Probation department Day Reporting center is at the probation Department at 109 1/2 (and a half) Pine Street on the second floor. (Right above Friar Tucks)
