Pinal County Juvenile Court is helping celebrate the 2022 Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week (PPPS Week) on July 17-23. The theme Restoring Trust, Creating Hope highlights how community corrections professionals are working to reduce recidivism and keep our communities safe.

The annual Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week (PPPS Week) campaign is a time to engage the public, policymakers, and legislators in recognizing the work that community corrections professionals provide to keep our communities safe. Community corrections professionals oversee persons convicted of a crime outside of jail or prison and are administered by agencies or courts with the legal authority to enforce sanctions. Community corrections include probation — correctional supervision within the community rather than jail or prison — and parole — a period of conditional, supervised release from prison.

"The challenges, as a result of the Public Health Crisis (COVID-19), now more than ever, trust and hope must be the priority," says Denise Smith, Director of Pinal County Juvenile Court Services. During the pandemic, community correction professionals continue to thoughtfully and intentionally serve as first responders in the name of safety and security. Our staff have shifted their work models in the most appropriate ways to continue to support, assist, monitor and guide the young people under Court supervision. My staff's talent, compassion and determination have been nothing less than praiseworthy."

Juvenile Court staff have been instrumental in driving significant and positive behavior changes of our youth in Pinal County for many years. The department's approach and strategies to supervision is guided by the organization's mission, which is to create positive growth opportunities as we implement programs that empower youth and strengthen families while improving community safety through the use of Evidence-Based practices.

During the 2022 Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week (PPPS Week), Juvenile Court will be celebrating the challenging work of our probation, detention, dependency, and CASA staff who continue to provide creative solutions for the youth and families we serve.

During PPPS Week, we urge you to learn more about this amazing profession, take the time to thank the community corrections professionals that serve your community, and help us support the profession," added Smith.
