Noble County Probation Department - Adult
The Noble County Probation Department serves the three Noble County Courts; County Circuit Court, County Superior Court Division 1, and County Superior Court Division 2.

Our office is responsible for supervising those ordered to Community Supervision along with other judicial directives.

Services include:

  • Pre-Sentence Investigations
  • Pre-Dispositional Reports
  • Court ordered drug screening,
  • Electronic Monitoring
  • Home/Field Contacts
  • Noble County Court Services,
  • Noble County Community Corrections
  • Community Transition Program
  • Noble County Problem Solving Courts (including Drug Court and Veteran's Court)
  • Employment Classes
  • Courage to Change Classes
  • Impaired Driving Classes

As of January 1, 2015, the Noble County Probation Department was supervising 891 adults who were convicted of felony or misdemeanor charges by the three (3) Courts. The Court orders standard and specific conditions of probation as needed.

Community Supervision is an important part of Noble County’s approach to supervising probationers. We contact probationers at their homes, places of employment, and other places within the community in an effort to ensure they are following through with the Court’s order.

Noble County Probation Department - Juvenile
Our office also handles juvenile offenders. As of January 1, 2015, the Noble County Probation Department was supervising 47 juveniles through informal or formal probation. In 2014, the Noble County Probation Department handled 249 cases referred by the local police departments and school corporations.

Juvenile Probation Officers assist the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office with determining which cases require the Court’s intervention and which cases may be filed in other ways. In 2014, there were 102 Juvenile Delinquent, Juvenile Status, and Juvenile Miscellaneous cases filed by the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office.

As of July 2013, Noble County Probation added a Community Corrections program to our department. Community Corrections includes: Problem Solving Courts (including Drug Court and Veterans Court), Community Transition Program, Electronic Monitoring/Home Detention, and Noble County Court Services

Drug Court, which was established in 2006, is a Problem Solving Court targeting substance abuse offenders. As of April 1, 2015, seventy-four (74) participants have graduated from Drug Court.

Veterans Court, established in 2015, recognizes the different needs our Veterans have with substance abuse treatment and decision-making.

The Community Transition Program, begun in 2013, allows certain offenders an early release from the Department of Correction, by placing them on electronic monitoring. This allows them a "step down" from prison, but still offers restrictions on activities and accountability.

Our Eletronic Monitoring/Home Detention program has long been in existence with the Probation Department and has been expanded to Community Corrections offenders. The offenders are monitored continually by GPS and their activities are restricted.

Noble County Court Services, begun in 2002 as a free-standing department, was brought under the Probation Department in 2007. The purpose of this division is to provide consistent substance abuse evaluations to offenders and refer them to appropriate treatment.
