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, 2009, the Noble County Probation Department was supervising 56 juveniles through probation terms and informal adjustments. In 2008, the Noble County Probation Department handled 383 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 2007, there were 129 Juvenile Delinquent, Juvenile Status, and Juvenile Miscellaneous cases filed by the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Noble County Probation Department has utilized grant funding for 6 of the past 7 years through the Criminal Justice Institute who administers the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant which is ultimately funded by the Department of Justice. This has allowed Probation Officers the opportunity to supervise juveniles within the community at various times and places. This allows our department to approach juvenile delinquency in a variety of ways, ultimately trying to assist juveniles so that they are not incarcerated.
