Welcome to the Greene County Probation Department.

What is Probation -

In the criminal justice system, Probation is a particular type of sentence for criminal defendants.  The Court has the authority to order a sentence which includes probation.   Generally Probation allows a convicted Defendant to go free with a suspended sentence for a specified duration of time.   Probationers are placed under the supervision of a Probation Officer and must complete certain conditions as set out in their probation order received from the Court at the time of sentencing.  If the Probationer violates a condition of Probation, the Court may place additional restrictions on the Probationer or order the Probationer to serve the suspended time of his/her jail or prison sentence.
