Contra Costa County Probation Department Launches Mobile Services


Contra Costa County’s Probation Department has launched one of the first comprehensive mobile probation services programs in the state.

The program will enable the Department to provide pretrial services, conduct client interviews engage with the community.

In May 2022, through a partnership with Contra Costa Superior Court, the Probation Department purchased three sprinter-style recreation vans that serve as mobile offices for our Probation and Pretrial Services programs and enhance the Department’s community outreach efforts.


Vans are equipped with fully functioning workstations, allowing deputy probation officers the ability to deliver services traditionally conducted in an office setting.

On weekdays, one of the vans is stationed in front of the A.F. Bray Court Building in downtown Martinez, providing clients the opportunity to check in with probation personnel immediately following their court appearance.

This approach eliminates clients’ need to travel to their local probation office to satisfy a court requirement or receive needed services.

“Delivering services in the community allows Probation to better engage with clients, which reduces barriers and ultimately increases their chances for success,” said Chief Probation Officer Esa Ehmen-Krause.

Another example of liberal California government serving, caring for and supporting criminals and law breakers. Meanwhile, honest, law abiding citizens foot the bill and get the shaft.

Seems like we just keep making it easier for the wrong doers, the expense of vehicle itself, gas, tolls etc, I assume us tax payers are paying for these expenses, what are these “needed services” they receive? Being sentence to probation is not a game show prize, don’t do the crime brother!

Nothing is too good for our crooks. News like this should attract more to live the good life here in crime friendly California.
