Probation and Court Services Department
Fourth Judicial Circuit of Illinois
Banee Ulrici, Chief Managing Officer
The Probation and Court Services office serves to help defendants successfully complete their probationary periods as prescribed by the court and to supervise children who are made wards of the court. The major functions of this Office include:
- Supervise adults and juveniles during probationary period determined by the court.
- Investigate the social background of defendants appearing before court prior to sentencing.
- Notify the court of any previous convictions of crimes or probation violations.
- Aid the defendant in rehabilitating himself and re integrating himself into the social mainstream.
- Maintain accurate records of all cases under their charge.
Probation officers perform many duties, most of which fall under two areas. The first is to conduct investigations and prepare reports for the Court. These reports provide the sentencing judge with detailed information about the offender and the offense. This information allows the Court to determine the most appropriate sentence for the offender. Secondly, probation officers provide supervision by monitoring an offender's conduct and providing positive guidance.
The goals of the supervision process are to protect the community and to help offenders make positive changes in their lives. Enhanced services are provided to DUI and drug cases. These cases receive increased supervision and are subject to frequent breath and urinalysis testing.
