WELCOME TO THE VENTURA COUNTY PROBATION AGENCY
The Ventura County Probation Agency is charged by the courts with the direct supervision of approximately 5,866 adult offenders and 390 juvenile offenders on probation, as well as performing two mandated functions: the preparation of sentencing reports for the courts and the operation of the Juvenile Facilities. To accomplish this mission, a highly-trained corps of armed deputy probation officers supervise the most serious offenders via close community monitoring, including global positioning system (GPS) tracking and frequent field contacts. Approximately 350 additional officers supervise low and moderate-risk probationers in the community and prepare sentencing reports for the courts, recommending appropriate sanctions including incarceration, counseling, or a combination of treatment services.
Are you considering a career in corrections? The Ventura County Probation Agency (VCPA) employs approximately 350 full-time peace officers as well as approximately 80 non-sworn personnel.
