This episode is the first of this series and Probation as a profession. This is a training seminar for CSRA probation based in Georgia. We will discuss a very short history of probation, compare that to modern day probation and discuss the general environment POs work in. Specialized caseloads, victimology, casework, service delivery and many other topics will be discussed with regards as to whether modern-day POs are Cops or Caseworkers. This is a training seminar based on Earlene Festervan's work entitled "Survival Guide for New Probation Officers" published by the American Correctional Association in 2000. This is a great field guide to working probation and more about the "How To's" and "Why's" of the PO process than statistics. Please come join us! Be advised, in advance, that anything said can be used for the training process without remuneration.
