Trainer Statement

A probation/parole professional's duties are defined largely as providing safety to the community and rehabilitative services to the offender. Both of these principles have guided the career I enjoy.  I do not believe them to be easily distinguishable.  The best criminal justice professionals strive to find the balance and synergy between the two.

When the professional sees the person seated in his or her interview room as a person with innate value and expertise about himself and his condition, he can begin to collaborate in a way that is mutually beneficial to that person and the community.  At that time, change can be facilitated.
