Tell Us What You Think

Should a dedicated Training and Research & Development center include employee development and employee wellness programs?

Thank you to all who participated in our past Thought Exchanges. We have used that valuable information to educate the California Legislature about the public safety “reform” (aka “defund”) organizations who launched a full-frontal attack on the role, purpose, and mission of Probation Officers.

Thanks to the hard work of our Executive Board, strongly bolstered by your voices through these Exchanges, we successfully stopped numerous bills that would have undercut our mission, our jobs, and our ability to defend ourselves and the youth we oversee in the Institutions.

As we go into a new legislative season in January, some of these negative bills will re-emerge and we are prepared to fight to the finish to assure that they are not signed into law. But we are also going on the offensive, proposing language to improve training and wellness for those working in the L.A. County Probation Department. We encourage you to participate in this new Thought Exchange to help support and guide the way!
