The goal is to promote public safety and at the same time hold offenders accountable for their actions. The department works closely with numerous criminal justice agencies, including the District Attorney’s Office, and many social services agencies.

The department prepares pre-sentencing reports for judges, monitors and enforces compliance with probation conditions, respond to the needs of victims, assist families in crisis, and help offenders to change.

In Westchester, monitoring takes the form of residential contacts, drug testing, making sure the offender attends counseling sessions, and helping offenders to find suitable housing and employment.
