Our department is responsible for preparing investigations for the Court, enforcing Court Orders, protecting the integrity of victims’ rights and working collaboratively with law enforcement agencies to reduce crime. The Erie County Probation Department also provides assistance to parents and guardians raising children who are at risk of penetrating the criminal justice system through our Family Services and Juvenile Delinquency Services Teams.
