Description of Duties

This is a senior level professional position in a probation department responsible for the control, supervision and care of adults and juveniles subject to probation investigation, supervision or intake services which require them to meet certain standards of conduct. The incumbent performs all the duties and exercises all the responsibilities of a Probation Officer; however, he/she is responsible for more complex assignments than those assigned a Probation Officer and exercises specialized skills regarding evaluating the conduct of probationers, analyzing data, making recommendations regarding court decisions and counseling and coaching probationers. He/she normally is assigned as the lead worker of a unit or a team leader of professional and para-professional probation personnel when a team approach is used. He/she may also be assigned special programs and/or projects. The work is performed under the general supervision of a Probation Supervisor or Principal Probation Officer with limited leeway allowed for the use of independent judgment in carrying out the details of the work. Supervision is not a characteristic of this position. The position varies from that of a Probation Officer by the complexity of the cases assigned, possible responsibility for special projects and responsibility as a lead worker position. A Senior Probation Officer is a Peace Officer pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law Section 2.10 and may be authorized to carry a firearm in the performance of his/her duties.
