Mission Statement

The Hocking County Municipal Court Probation Department is dedicated to the enhancement of our community in a professional and caring manner.  We are devoted to supporting and serving offenders and the Hocking County Municipal Court.  Through efficient service, we are committed to meet the needs of those individuals who we serve, and to achieve the ultimate goal of rehabilitation for the offender, and protection of the public.

Functions of the Probation Department

Before Sentencing:Those defendants found guilty of misdemeanors from the 4th to the 1st degree (M-4 through M1) in traffic and criminal cases, in some instances, are referred to the Probation Department for a pre-sentence interview and report.

After Sentencing: When an offender is assigned to enter a program of probation, a probation officer will generally supervise him or her.  The probation officer’s challenge is to see that the offender participates in all required treatment/education programs, refrains from criminal behavior, and addresses all orders of the court in a responsible and conscientious manner. The Hocking County Municipal Court Probation Department protects the City of Logan and Hocking County, and also provides the offender the opportunity to correct the behavior that is harmful to society and themselves.
