Welcome to the Sonoma County Probation Department. We believe this to be one of the finest Probation Departments in the state of California. Probation is an integral part of the criminal justice system. The 300 men and women of the Sonoma County Probation Department are proud of their contributions supporting the Court, assisting delinquent youth and adult offenders in making positive changes to their behavior, helping victims, and delivering effective prevention and intervention services that make for safer and healthier communities.

Building Partnerships for a Safe Community


Successful Probation work requires collaborative relationships and multi-system strategies with a variety of partners. In serving as the neutral arm of Court, the Probation Department works with defense attorneys and prosecutors to complete comprehensive pre-sentence investigations and reports. These reports provide the Court with the information necessary to sentence defendants in criminal cases.
