The Greene County Probation Department is a county agency, established pursuant to Article 12 of the N.Y.S. Executive Law, under the supervision of the Greene County Legislature and the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services/Office of Probation and Correctional Alternatives.
The department has a full-time staff of twelve, which consists of 10 sworn staff: the Director, two Supervisors, three Senior Officers, four Officers, and two Assistants. All of the department’s sworn staff are New York State certified peace officers.

Of the 16 juveniles, 5 (all juvenile delinquents) are at the court diversion stage; 4 ( 3 juvenile delinquent and 1Person In Need of Supervision) have been petitioned into court and are at the pre-dispositional supervision stage; and 7 (all juvenile delinquents) are under supervision following Family Court adjudication and formal probation placement.
The Greene County Probation Department recognizes the importance of sustained employment for individuals under community supervision. Employment provides individuals a means to self-sufficiency and the ability to support their families, as well as the capacity to structure their time in positive ways. Probation also understands the needs of area employers and their ability to ask questions of probation officers about work schedules and other work environment related issues. Accordingly, the Greene County Probation Department has designated a Probation Employment Liaison Officer to communicate with area employers.
Please feel free to contact Probation Officer Felicia Walters at 518-719-3200 if you are an area employer who has any general questions about probation conditions relating to employment, employment opportunities for individuals on probation, or any other employment-related concerns.
