Lehigh County: Adult Probation and Parole Department information provided by: Lehigh County Department of Human Services

The Lehigh County Adult Probation and Parole Department, as a mission, seeks to aid in the reduction of crime in the community through field-based supervision, treatment and rehabilitation of the offender, thus protecting the public from recurring criminal and anti-social behavior. In addition, the department assists the Court in sentencing through the completion of pre-sentence investigations on offenders as directed. Special services and intensive supervision are provided to those offenders, who have a history of substance use and abuse, and to those where mental health disorders or mental retardation are evident.

In 1996, Restorative Justice was introduced as an innovative, philosophical approach to supervision. This new paradigm, stressing the development of competencies and accountability within clients, has led to the introduction of new, educational programming for those under the department‘‘s supervision. Included in these on-site classroom presentations are Adult Literacy, Alcohol Highway Safety, Finance Health Issues, Job Readiness Training, Retail Theft Rehabilitation, and Substance Abuse Education.

Other services offered by the department include the Community Work Service Project, Electronic Monitoring, and the Restitution Enhancement Program. In a continuing effort to upgrade and enhance departmental programming, several new initiatives are being developed, to include Victim/Offender Mediation, Child Abuse Prevention, and Domestic Violence Prevention.

The people who work here suck! I dont know how many times I have tried to contact someone and left messages for them, and they dont call back. Its a freaking joke! These people are horrible! And the programs are 100 times worse than what the people do! Stand up for yourself because if not, they'll ruin you and make your life miserable!

There isn't enough space on here to even begin to explain the insanity and obtuse thinking of this department. However, not being someone who talks without action; I will do everything I can to impact the pervasive warped thinking and behavior of those who are given power and use it as a weapon rather than a tool.
