What information can I obtain about a probationer from the Probation Department?

Generally, the law prohibits dissemination of information about probation clients, especially juveniles, by the Probation Department. However, victims of crimes may be entitled to limited information and should contact the department with their request. Remember, the Probation Department does not handle all cases, therefore, victims may find it necessary to contact the District Attorney, or the Victim-Witness Division of the District Attorney's Office - depending on the case.
