Trainer Statement

A probation/parole professional's duties are defined largely as providing safety to the community and rehabilitative services to the offender. Both of these principles have guided the career I enjoy.  I do not believe them to be easily distinguishable.  The best criminal justice professionals strive to find the balance and synergy between the two.

One is seldom persuaded by the advice of others, and instead do as they choose.  It is in that choice that magic can occur.
