Probation and Dogs that Bite: Understanding a Denver Probation Officer

Denver Probation and Probation Revocation Complaint

When your dog bites someone, should he be trusted to roam freely? No, he needs to be taught not to bite people and carefully controlled in the process. After all, as his owner, you are responsible for civil losses and potential criminal charges if he bites again. This illustration has remarkable similarities to people on probation and Probation Revocation Complaints. Read about Probation Officers.

Probation Officer in Arapahoe County and a Dog Owner – Risk Management

Probation Officers in Arapahoe County are given the task of managing people who have been convicted of a criminal offense. Whether a sex offender or shoplifter, the person needs direction, rehabilitation and supervision. If done in an ineffective or poor manner, the Probation Officer can lose their job. Imagine the response if a sex offender reoffends because the Officer let them have contact with a vulnerable victim. Likewise, dog owners have liability for their pets if they remove their leash or fail to prevent contact with vulnerable bite victims.

Jefferson County Probation Supervision: SOISP and Regular Probation – The Degree of Oversight

In the real world of probation supervision, Jefferson County Probation Officers must assess the risk an offender presents to the community and manage that risk. Since they can’t just lock up everyone they supervise, for those convicted of more serious crimes, or more likely to reoffend, tighter controls are in order. Imposing barriers to contact with kids does not make sense for shoplifters, but it makes perfect sense for those convicted of child abuse. Violent offenders will not be allowed to go out to parties and drink alcohol until they successfully obtain treatment to avoid violent episodes.

Probation Officer’s Mindset in Adams County: Move Slowly and Methodically

A probation officer will keep a tight rein (or leash) on an offender until their risk is figured out from testing, treatment and behavior. You need to patiently give them time to figure you out, and that process will move slower than you think it should. You might have a curfew, be denied alcohol, denied contact with your spouse-victim or kids. Eventually, your leash will give you more room to roam, but if you break the rules or reoffend, the leash will be made short and tight again. You may even face a Probation Revocation Complaint. After all, a dog who bites a second time simply can’t be trusted – right? Probation Revocation or Violation.
