Probation Employment Liaison Officer
The Jefferson County Probation Department recognizes the importance of sustained employment for individuals under community supervision. Employment provides individuals a means to self-sufficiency and the ability to support their families, as well as the capacity to structure their time in positive ways. Probation also understands the needs of area employers and their ability to ask questions of probation officers about work schedules and other work environment related issues. Accordingly, the Jefferson County Probation Department has designated a single point of contact or Probation Employment Liaison officer to communicate with area employers.
Please feel free to contact Sr. Probation Officer Stephen Kowalick at (315) 785-3007 if you are an area employer who has any general questions about probation conditions relating to employment, employment opportunities for individuals on probation, or if you have any other employment related questions or concerns.
Domestic Violence Liaison Officer
The role of the liaison is to collaborate with law enforcement and domestic violence programs to promote victim safety while ensuring the probationer is held accountable. Please feel free to contact Probation Officer Tracy J. Quinn at (315) 785-3071 for further information.
