The Riverside County Probation Department engages in continuous improvement, searching for and applying "best practices," using measurable outcomes to evaluate programs, and making every effort to fulfill its mission and to make Riverside County a safe community for its citizens. We recognize the value of a qualified, professional, high energy, and diverse workforce. We highly regard ethical behavior, values and traits in our staff such as integrity, honesty, accountability, commitment, compassion, creativity, excellence, dedication and respect and we constantly strive to uphold the public trust and to provide the best quality service to our constituents.

Riverside County Probation enjoys an excellent reputation for working in a collaborative manner with law enforcement, public and private social services agencies, mental health, schools, and other county departments. Our dedicated sworn-personnel participate in a wide variety of assignments that range from conducting investigations on adult and juvenile criminal offenders; providing intensive supervision and early intervention and treatment services in the community; high profile task force assignments (Drug, Gang, Sex Offender); and providing juvenile institutional detention and treatment programs throughout the county. The support staff, in all specialties, is an integral and valued component of our department.

In 2017, the Riverside County Probation Department launched its Lean Continuous Improvement Plan in an effort to increase efficiency, improve financial stewardship, and reduce waste. Since the launch of the Lean Continuous Improvement plan in 2017, we have mapped key operations of the department, including: Adult supervision; juvenile supervision; and institutional services to establish metrics/goals and identify areas needing improvement. Through the assistance of a Lean management consultant, we have developed strategic planning and working sessions to consolidate improvement recommendations and align them with the department’s strategic goals.

We are meeting the challenges and embracing the opportunities associated with the rapid growth of Riverside County and with on-going changes in legislation. We will continue to provide the constituents of Riverside County with the first rate services they have come to know and expect from the Riverside County Probation Department.

Together, we truly can make a difference in the lives of others.
