Mission Statement and Vision


The mission of the Erie County Probation Department is to provide the residents of Erie County with a safer community, make victims whole using restorative justice practices, and facilitate positive change in justice-system-involved individuals through the use of evidence-based practices. This will be accomplished through collaborating with community partners to assist with risk and recidivism reduction, removing barriers to personal achievement, while holding offenders accountable to their court-ordered conditions.  In fulfilling our mission we aim to foster confidence in law enforcement and effect lasting change in our community and the population we serve.
