Parole & Probation Summit: first of its kind
TOWSON, MD — More than 100 first line supervisors in the Division of Parole and Probation gathered for an intensive summit last week at the Public Safety Education and Training Center in Sykesville.
The first- of -its -kind event was facilitated by Parole and Probation and the Public Safety Commitment to Excellence leadership development group. It was designed to offer training and feedback as the Division stands at the brink of being a key player in the Justice Reinvestment Act (JRA).
Longtime Eastern Shore judge Danny Long, the chair of the JRA’s oversight panel, talked to the supervisors about the critical –some say once -in -a -lifetime — criminal justice reform.
Judge Long and DPP’s top leaders reminded the group of how critical their roles are.
Parole and Probation first line supervisors oversee a group of agents and Drinking Driver Program monitors, usually in a single office, at the more than 40 Parole and Probation offices across Maryland.
The Division of Parole and Probation supervises more than 52,000 people in Maryland.
